I'd like to install the Brave browser, but curl cannot be installed.
The previous question suggested I should switch to another ubuntu mirror. I switched to the best server, yet nothing changed.

This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source E: Package 'curl' has no installation candidate
Updating gives the following:

Kulfy, thank you. I had to run these lines first, then it got installed
apt remove -y libcurl4 apt install -y libcurl4 curl
Ruby, thank you. At this moment, the browser is being installed. I fixed the problem based on this answer https://askubuntu.com/a/1051988/1100108 Not sure if your solution leads to the same thing, but all good now.
