Installing SecureCRT and SecureFX 8.7.1 Bundle on Ubuntu 20

There are no plans to support version 8.7.x on Ubuntu 20.x.

SecureCRT/SecureFX 9.0 will be supported on Ubuntu 20.04. If you are interested in trying out version 9.0, you can download the installer for Ubuntu 20.04 as per the information in this updated post:
Note that with alpha/beta versions you should be aware of the following caveats:
  1. Alpha/Beta builds will expire in less than 90 days
  2. Alpha/Beta builds may expire in 30 days if your license isn't eligible for registration of any newer versions (e.g. if your license is older than 1 year or 3 years, if you have a 3-year license); also understand that even if your license is eligible to register the alpha/beta version, there is no guarantee that it will still be eligible to register the next *official* (non-beta) release if its release date occurs after your license eligibility period has expired.
8.7.x Workaround
In the meantime, here are a list of steps you can take to possibly get the Ubuntu 19 SecureCRT and SecureFX 8.7.x Bundle installer (or the Ubuntu 19 SecureCRT 8.7.x installer) to work on your Ubuntu 20.04 machine, namely:
# Download libssl1.0:
# Download libicu63:
# Install libssl1.0:
sudo dpkg -i libssl1.0.0_1.0.2n-1ubuntu5.4_amd64.deb
# Install libicu63:
sudo dpkg -i libicu63_63.2-2_amd64.deb
# Install libpython2.7
sudo apt-get -y install libpython2.7
# Install SecureCRT (8.7.3 Ubuntu 19 installer is exemplified)
sudo dpkg -i scrt-sfx-8.7.3-2279.ubuntu19-64.x86_64.deb
# Launch SecureCRT
