Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable

proxmox-backup-client : Depends: libfuse3-3 (>= 3.2.3) but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Have I missed an obvious way to install the client in ubuntu 18.04? (It would be a shame not to be able to backup the machine using pbs - as i had wanted to backup the server before doing a dist upgrade in the next month or so)
