​All this was long ago fixed.​

​My advice is to upgrade the OS or install​ another copy in a virtual
machine or different computer. Regardless of availability of the Snap
packages, staying with outdated software on LTS platforms will be always a
compromise. It's not a problem for apps that do not evolve much anymore but
Kexi is actively developed and users are hungry for features :)

We'll be looking for a way when practically every week new updates appear
for Kexi.
