    Quote from MS document;

    SQL server supported platforms is Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, 18.04 LTS, 20.04 LTS.

    For other versions of Ubuntu that not listed in supported list, suggest you do not install SQL server on it. You may meet many issues even you installed SQL server on it successfully. The version of Ubuntu that listed in supported list is be test many times by MS.
