  • lsb-cxx was dropped by upstream with the release of LSB 5.0 back in 2015. Ubuntu dropped the package sometime after 14.04. It's not in Ubuntu 16.04 or newer. You can probably find an old version on Launchpad or in Debian, but it may not be compatible with 18.04's LSB 9.2 packages. Most of the functionality is the same in the newer packages - they just have somewhat different names.
