Hi, I have a x86 20.04 system, I can't find the PPA even after doing
apt-add-repository and similar steps. Roughly, I'd expect this to
return something:
$ apt search chirp

or this to work:
$ apt install chirp-daily
E: Unable to locate package chirp-daily

Are there known problems finding chirp-daily in the "focal" packages?
Here's a sample to back it up.
