Ubuntu 20.04 - Install Discord Client

Steps

Run the following command to download and install Discord using a traditional deb package file.

sudo apt update \
  && sudo apt install -y gdebi-core wget \
  && wget -O ~/discord.deb "https://discordapp.com/api/download?platform=linux&format=deb" \
  && sudo gdebi ~/discord.deb

This will automatically download the latest version.

Snap Installation

There is a far simpler way to install through snaps (below)

sudo snap install discord

I would not recommend this method, as this led me to having issues uploading/posting images.
