apt – Installing fpm on Ubuntu 20.04


I tried to install ruby2.3 on Ubuntu 20.04. sudo apt install ruby2.3 failed as it is unable to locate package ruby2.3. I then tried installing via snap:

$ sudo snap install ruby --classic
$ sudo snap switch ruby --channel=2.3/stable
$ sudo snap refresh

Then I tried to install fpm:

$ gem install fpm

Building native extensions.  This could take a while...

Other solutions seem to suggest installing ruby-dev, but ruby2.3-dev is not available, nor is ruby2.3.8-dev.
