I had just tried Ubuntu 20.04 in a parallels virtual machine and my server app worked ok. I will try a Debian build too. I wonder why LC don’t state support for later Ubuntu, Fedora or Debian builds?

Because the team builds the engine on an Ubuntu 16 machine and so 
doesn't want to say they support anything later.

The build process is broken on later versions. I submitted a PR to fix 
this (it works here) but apparently it doesn't fix things the "right" 
way, so...

And note that we are coming up on the end of Ubuntu 16.04 LTS support on 
30 April 2021.
