==========================================================================

IMPORTANT NOTE for Focal and earlier: Upgrading to fuse3 can cause dpkg to attempt removal of many packages, rather than it just simply upgrading the old fuse to fuse3 (which then "provides" fuse anyhow). To rectify this for now until a possible different solution is found do the following command:

  sudo apt-get install fuse3

NOTE FOR ALL: Some packages are built with and require FFmpeg >= 4.4 (ie. xpra) so if you encounter any FFmpeg related install issues (ie. missing libav* packages) then do the following steps first for successful install:

  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/ffmpeg4
  sudo apt-get update

Note about Curl: Specialised version containing both Curl 3 & 4 symbols and providing the libcurl3 package dependency, allowing installation of software explicitly depending on libcurl3 even on Bionic and newer. See https://launchpad.net/~savoury1/+archive/ubuntu/curl34 for more details.

Note about Ukuu: Final freely licensed version (18.9.3) has been patched to build with recent vala (>= 0.44.1) and patched for notable changes made by the Ubuntu kernel team to the directory structure (with arch sub-dirs) on kernel.ubuntu.com for mainline kernel versions built after 7 Jun 2020.

Xenial & GCC 7.5.0 (FileZilla & nghttp2): Some backports require GCC >= 7 to install and run, due new source code using features found in modern GCC (Xenial default is 5.4.0). FileZilla 3.50.0 and nghttp2 1.41.0 are two examples of such software. There are two choices at this Launchpad site for GCC 7.5.0 on Xenial: ppa:savoury1/toolchain for required GCC packages while keeping GCC 5.4.0 as system default, OR to set GCC 7.5.0 as system default use ppa:savoury1/gcc-defaults-7 instead. Do the following steps:

  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/toolchain

OR

  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/gcc-defaults-7

THEN

  sudo apt-get update
  sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
