I am trying to follow quick installation guide for GeoNode on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. https://docs.geonode.org/en/2.8/tutorials/install_and_admin/quick_install.html

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:geonode/stable sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade; sudo apt-get autoremove sudo apt-get install geonode

However, when I try to run last line, it shows me error: E: Unable to locate package geonode

If you look at the screenshot: there are already errors while adding repository, such as "E: The repository 'http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntugis/ppa/ubuntu focal Release' does not have a Release file." and others...

What could be the solution?

sudo add-apt-repository

There is simply no way to install Geonode using the ppa way as there are no Geonode packages available for this Ubuntu release ("Focal Fossa"). When you go to https://launchpad.net/~geonode/+archive/ubuntu/testing, you get the following list and 20.04 is not included.

You should use alternate solutions e.g like Docker (https://docs.geonode.org/en/2.8/tutorials/install_and_admin/running_docker/index.html) or adapt Development install recipe to install Geonode at the moment
