How to install KeePassXC 2.6.1 on Ubuntu :

of Official upstream PPA I have created a password manager package for Ubuntu 16.04, Ubuntu 18.04, Ubuntu 20.04, and derivatives.

1.) Open Terminal by pressing Ctrl + Alt + T on your keyboard or by searching for “Terminal” in the System Application Launcher.

When the terminal opens, run the command to add the PPA.

                      sudo add-apt-repository ppa:phoerious/keepassxc

When prompted, enter your password (without asterisk feedback) and press Enter to continue.

2.) Then use Software Updater to update the software package.

Alternatively, run the command to install the software.
