PSPP is an open source alternative to SPSS. Because of licensing issues it isn't in official Ubuntu repositories. I have found downloads available for Ubuntu 20.10 and 18.04 at https://pkgs.org/download/pspp but I run 20.04 and don't want to upgrade. Am I out of luck or is there a safe choice for me? (I can follow directions but am not really adept at Linux yet - just switched over.) Thx.
