Install QupZilla 2.2.0 in Ubuntu:

QupZilla 2.2.0 requires Qt 5.9.2. It can’t be built with default Qt libraries in all current Ubuntu releases.

At the moment, you can only download the Appimage, non-install single executable file, from the link below:

Then make it executable via its Properties window, and run the file to launch QupZilla:
