Bang Head Here (mine, not yours)

i have two small DVSwitch-using projects in mind. for both projects, i have already obtained permission to connect a bridge.

my first try used the blog post "Hosting an AllStar Node and an AllStarDMR bridge in the cloud" as the basis, and i thought i might be able to follow along and end up at my ultimate goal of bridging from a low traffic BM TG to an Echolink Conference.

what i have learned so far is it seems since the time when KV4S wrote the blog post and now, there are no separate allstarlink and dvswitch repositories. it is enough to add just the dvswitch repo, thus:

(now how the heck did the text color and paragraph margin color get set?!)
(okay fixed: click "Source code" in the groups.io editor and throw away the css style bits that got automagically inserted)
(right. back to my post .. "what i have learned so far")

secondly, attempting to install the allstarlink package runs right into a problem:

$ sudo apt install allstarlink asl-asterisk libcurl3
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package libcurl3 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source
However the following packages replace it: libcurl4:i386 libcurl4

E: Package 'libcurl3' has no installation candidate

(i give up trying to use the editor. it messes up when there's more than one blockquote. "Source code" editing it is..)

here's the list of libcurl* packages available to me (Ubuntu 19.10, soon to be 20.04 LTS):

$ apt search libcurl | grep -E "^libcu"

WARNING: apt does not have a stable CLI interface. Use with caution in scripts.

libcupt4-2-downloadmethod-curl/eoan 2.10.3 amd64
libcurl-ocaml/eoan 0.8.2-1build3 amd64
libcurl-ocaml-dev/eoan 0.8.2-1build3 amd64
libcurl3-gnutls/eoan,now 7.65.3-1ubuntu3 amd64 [installed]
libcurl3-nss/eoan 7.65.3-1ubuntu3 amd64
libcurl4/eoan,now 7.65.3-1ubuntu3 amd64 [installed]

libcurlpp-dev/eoan 0.8.1-2build1 amd64
libcurlpp0/eoan 0.8.1-2build1 amd64

i can make no more forward progress. my wagon's axle is lodged on the remainder of a cut-down tree in the road: i am "stumped."
if someone can guide me clear of this obstacle, i'd very much appreciate it.
