A new Ubuntu LTS, a new set of minor package naming annoyances. Here is the current process:

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt install \
    gcc curl g++ dpkg-dev build-essential automake autoconf \
    libncurses-dev libssl-dev flex xsltproc libwxgtk3.2-dev \
    wget vim git
mkdir -p ~/vcs ~/bin
cd ~/vcs
kerl build 26.2.5 26.2.5
kerl install 26.2.5 ~/.erts/26.2.5
echo '. "$HOME"/.erts/26.2.5/activate' >> .bashrc
. ~/.erts/26.2.5/activate
wget -q && bash get_zx
