Public bug reported: Trying to install .deb for Brother ADS-2200 scanner. Worked previously in 18.04, 18.10, 19.04 and 19.10.
If I double click on the .deb, Gnome Software attempts to install and fails with the following error: Failed to install file: not supported If I use apt to install the file manually I get the following error: sudo apt install ./brscanads2200ads2700w-0.1.15-1.amd64.deb Reading package lists...
