Visit and click on “Download Now”

From the next screen, select operating system as “Ubuntu Linux”

download the deb package as per your Ubuntu version. On our machine, we had Ubuntu 20.04 as seen using “lsb_release -a” command earlier, so we selected the same deb package. [ Note: as you can see, there are two deb packages, so we selected second last as last one is debug package _dbgsym_]
