Post Open CPN on Debian in 2020

Hi folks,



I'm new to the forum and to Open CPN. Got it up and running on my Macbook, but I prefer to use Linux when possible. I am running Debian Buster and I added the Ubuntu PPA (the instruction says the Trusty version is the correct Ubuntu version to use). I get the following error:


Code:
sudo apt-get install opencpn
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 opencpn : Depends: libcurl3 (>= 7.16.2) but it is not installable
           Depends: libtinyxml2.6.2 but it is not installable
           Depends: libwxbase3.0-0 (>= 3.0.0) but it is not installable
           Depends: libwxgtk3.0-0 (>= 3.0.0) but it is not installable
           Recommends: xcalib but it is not going to be installed
           Recommends: opencpn-doc but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
I'm wondering if it is simply that the Trusty PPA is no longer the correct one for Debian. Any advice or recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

sudo apt-get install -f
(will often install missing dependencies)

Try bionic instead.

Changing to bionic helped, I get a few error messages, but it opens and runs. Thanks!
