I'm trying to install the package 'xiphos' on a fresh install of Xubuntu 21.10, but it doesn't appear in the Software Center, and 'apt-search' is unable to locate it. The 'Ubuntu -- Package Search' page shows it as being part of the 'Universe' repository, and I have made sure Universe is enabled and updated, but still nothing.
I notice, however, that the Package Search page adds the tag 'impish (21.10)(gnome)' to the the listing. Does this mean that I need to have the full Gnome desktop installed before apt will let me install Xiphos? If not, how do I get apt (or the Software Center) to let me install it?
(Also: Xiphos isn't available as a snap, and I tried adding a ppa for Xiphos as per this answer, but this information appears to be outdated, since it returns an error: "The user named '~unit193' has no PPA named 'ubuntu/crosswire'")
Edit: I deleted the 'sources.list' file, and renamed 'sources.list.save' as 'sources.list', then updated, but still getting the same error message: "Unable to locate the package xiphos". I also tried searching for xiphos with both uppercase and lowercase capitalization, but still getting the same error message.
Edit 2: The output of the command
grep -r ^deb /etc/apt --include=*.list is (note that StackExchange won't allow me to post more than 8 links, so where you see 'ttp://' below, I have removed the letter 'h' to make it inactive):
/etc/apt/sources.list:deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu focal main restricted universe /etc/apt/sources.list:deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu focal-updates main restricted universe /etc/apt/sources.list:deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu focal multiverse /etc/apt/sources.list:deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu focal-updates multiverse /etc/apt/sources.list:deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu focal-backports main restricted multiverse universe /etc/apt/sources.list:deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu focal-security main restricted universe /etc/apt/sources.list:deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu focal-security multiverse
Also, the output of
sudo apt-get update is:

Edit 3: karel, I tried your suggestion with 'wget', and this is the output:
The following packages have unmet dependencies: xiphos : Depends: xiphos-data (= 4.2.1+dfsg1-5) but it is not installable Depends: libgdk-pixbuf-2.0-0 (>= 2.22.0) but it is not installable Depends: libicu67 (>= 67.1-1~) but it is not installable Depends: libsword1.9.0 (>= 1.9.0+dfsg) but it is not installable
I'm planning to work on getting those dependencies soon, but they don't seem to be available with 'apt'.
Edit 4: So I wasn't able to find any of those dependencies, either with 'apt' or 'wget'. Karel & NOrbert I appreciate your time. I've decided to just install a different program, called 'BibleTime'. It's not what I wanted, but at least it installed without hassle. And if even that doesn't work well, then maybe I'll install WINE and eSword instead.
