gronostaj126521dWhat do you mean by "another ubuntu repository"? It's a regular 19.10 repo, `sudo apt install tomcat9`.
gronostaj126520d19.10 is out, at least the Desktop version is. Adding repos from newer Ubuntu version will basically upgrade your system to that version, but in an unsafe way. Try to find a PPA with the version you need, find a generic package or build from sources.
theKarlisK634720dI feel your pain. Have you tried downloading the deb files and installing them through apt by specifying the "./downloaded-file.deb" or "~/Downloads/downloaded-file.deb" as the thing to install? A more brute approach would be to install it with "dpkg -i downloaded-file.deb".
This might work by installing a package from an older Ubuntu release on to a newer, but might not work for an older release as the required dependency versions might not match.
Plasticnova139220dYou should be able to loosely follow this guide to build a version from source, just download the tarball for the version you need instead of the version specified in the guide
Edit: actually even easier, looks like they are downloading a prebuilt tarball
shakur15720dThanks to all of your inputs. I downloaded a deb file that ensures safe install and uninstall. Source Code build would be a second alternative.
