Jim;

You don't need to download Python 2.7 from the Python WEB page, or download
the flatpak.
Its in Focals,(20.04)Repositories.

These are all terminal commands, don't use the quotes.

"sudo apt install python2"  will install 2.7

"ls -ls /usr/bin/python*"  will list your versions of python installed.
In my case 2.7 and 3.8
