# Install Ubiquiti Unifi Controller on Ubuntu 20.04.

## Previous install steps from when unifi still required mongodb-server <= 3.4.
## unifi has since been updated to work with mongodb-server 3.6. Which is available from the Ubuntu 20.04 main repository.

Yes it was the same situation on ubuntu 20.04 64-bit:
N: Skipping acquire of configured file 'ubiquiti/binary-i386/Packages' as repository 'https://www.ui.com/downloads/unifi/debian stable InRelease' doesn't support architecture 'i386'

Fixed it by editing /etc/apt/sources.list.d/100-ubnt-unifi.list file, and defined the architecture:
deb [arch=amd64] https://www.ui.com/downloads/unifi/debian stable ubiquiti

Now the updates are working correctly.

I have tested the code that I have published in my git repository below and works fine for me.
