I am trying to install BalenaEtcher on ubuntu 20.04 but getting "BalenaEtcher repository not found 502 bad gateway"

Tried these commands: echo "deb https://deb.etcher.io stable etcher" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/balena-etcher.list

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 379CE192D401AB61

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install balena-etcher-electron

Finally this worked for me

curl -1sLf \
   'https://dl.cloudsmith.io/public/balena/etcher/setup.deb.sh' \
   | sudo -E bash

then,

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install balena-etcher-electron

I'm not telling you what to do, but why don't you run balenaEtcher via Appimage?

You will probably need balenaEtcher only occasionally and the Appimage works really well. You can firejail it if you want to. If you add Appimagelauncher, then the Appimages integrate really well with the desktop. You can search them via Alt + F2 or start them via launcher.

You don't need to install a .deb file. It is perhaps less risky to use the Appimage. Just a thought...
