Confirmed....installing fine on 22.04 LTS (kubuntu) now. already had kstars and indi-bin working fine as I'm connecting to a rPi that hasn't been updated... yet... but just installed indi-full on my pc with no conflicts or dependency issues whatsoever. Now i can connect my additional equipment to my pc too. Thanks Jasem and anyone else who sorted this for us all.
If you had the Ubuntu official indi installed before, you should remove them ALL first.
Some packages without 'indi' prefix should be removed like:
sudo dpkg --remove libplayeronecamera2
sudo dpkg --remove libfishcamp1
LATER EDIT: FIXED
sudo apt-get remove brltty
then do a restart for good measure.
Spoke too soon, seems there is a problem with the eqmod driver or the kernel driver for serial, my HEQ5 mount no longer connects to INDI via FTDI cable. Had to resort to my windows setup last night (the mount worked there).
Here's some context:

Here's the Ekos log for the mount, seems to only find my laptops' 4G Modem:

Later edit: After removing brittly still getting the following errors:

Just had lots of problems connecting to USB and serial devices due to the brltty.services. This is what finally worked for me (Ubuntu Mate 22.04 on RPi4).
sudo systemctl stop brltty-udev.service
sudo systemctl mask brltty-udev.service
sudo systemctl stop brltty.service
sudo systemctl disable brltty.service
you can check these service are inactive/dead by doing
sudo systemctl status brltty-udev.service
sudo systemctl status brltty.service
After doing the above I was able to recognise my arduino based devices and other usb devices.
I also found that you need to install linux-modules-extra-raspi to recognise any arduino uno based devices.
So the final verdict? Will an update to v1.9.6 stable work with 22.04 or do I have to go to the nightly? I'm particularly concerned with the pl2303 converter. I have to run an older version for it to communicate with my EQ6R. Anyone running latest (stable or nightly) with an EQ6R on 22.04?
