Unable to locate package, Ubuntu PPA
Added the PPA and ran an update as described in the download page, but the package chirp-daily isn't found - screenshot attached.
Also, when I attempted to build from source, packages python-gtk python-serial werent' found.

CHIRP depends on python2 and several other python2 related packages. These have been removed from Ubuntu 20.04
As CHIRP is migrated to python3, you can try a flatpak that is in early development in the meantime.
sudo apt install flatpak
If that doesnt work then try:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:alexlarsson/flatpak sudo apt update sudo apt install flatpak
Now that flatpak is installed, you'll need to set up the gnome plugin and the default repository
sudo apt install gnome-software-plugin-flatpak flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo
Now that flatpak is all set up try out this flatpak by Richard Shaw
curl -LO https://hobbes1069.fedorapeople.org/chirp-20200430.flatpak flatpak uninstall chirp flatpak install chirp-20200430.flatpak
If you already had flatpak installed, you'll immediately notice a CHIRP icon in your programs list.
If you just installed flatpak, log out and log back in to see the new CHIRP icon in your programs list.

I recently installed Ubuntu 20.04 as a dual-boot on my 2011 Macbook Air (which is stuck at 10.13 High Sierra -- two OS X versions behind and cannot be upgraded any further). Since the laptop itself is fully functional I am beginning the transition to Ubuntu for this box. I have been using CHIRP with the current OS X 10.13, but when I went to load it on Ubuntu 20.04, I ran into the same problem with getting CHIRP up and running.
Thank you Tony for providing the solution I needed. I am a Linux novice, so your traightforward and complete instructions were most helpful. Using flatpak, I am now up and running with CHIRP on the Linux side of my system. I am using CHIRP to maintain the programming of my Baofeng BF-F8HP. It is working perfectly.
