FWIW, I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS yesterday on an old PC 
with Nvidia GT1030 and it failed to even install.

I hit a know bug about selecting 3rd party video drivers on 
installation. So I did it again without that checkbox and it installed.

Then I sudo apt upgrade && sudo apt upgrade -y. Then I installed 
ubuntu-restricrted-extras package ans updated all the software again.

At this point mythtv installed fine, but I did NOT install mariadb. Just 
use the default mysql.
