Started /w clean SSD, added Kubuntu 20.04, applied patches.
Added Synaptic Package Manager, Firewalld, Bleachbit, and KeePassX w/o any problems.
Installed PerfectPrivacyVPN using new https://www.perfect-privacy.com/downloads/perfect-privacy-vpn.deb
Activated and it works now.
Thank you !!!
Note if previously installed another VPN (ie NordVPN), then PP-VPN will not work.
I suspect each VPN provider installs some version of Openvpn which may not work with another VPN provider.
So, best to start /w a new copy of Kubuntu 20.04 and NO other VPN installed.
