Recently, I found out that mythbuntu is nolonger a distribution. So, I am guessing that my path should be to install ubuntu desktop 20.04, and then install mythtv manually. Is there a known guide for this? I see general guides and messages on this list, but would like to know if there is a known documented/recommended procedure. I prefer to use something that covers all angles, instead of finding gotchas on the way. Last time I tried it a long time ago, I had to give up and stick to 14.04. Hopefully, I have better luck this time.

With Xubuntu 20.04 I suggest you add mythbuntu ppa for mythtv 31 before 
installing mythtv 31

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mythbuntu/31
sudo apt-get update

The version of mythtv 31 in the default Ubuntu repository is old and has 
a problem when setting up with mysql 8 in 20.04, this problem is fixed 
in the mythbuntu ppa version, although there is still a problem with 
some of the mythplugins e.g. mytharchive (this is being worked on).
