I can't install Softaculous on Ubuntu. Below is the error, and to me it seems pretty obvious that the Softaculous script is still expecting a Redhat compatible OS instead of a Debian compatbile OS.

1. The (official) instructions I followed:


2. The output and the error:

```
Welcome to Softaculous Apps Installer
...

=====================================================
Congratulations, Softaculous was installed successfully

```

That leaves me with the question.

Is Softaculous available on Ubuntu 20.04 for cPanel, and if so, how do I install it?

It says " Softaculous was installed successfully "
to confirm:

Go back to WHM and search for "Softaculous Instant".
