Ubuntu 21.04 problem: unmet dependencies

Hi folks!
I try to install cqrlog on my Ubuntu 21.04 machine, but have trouble to solve this problem.
I follow the instructions to install like this:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ok2cqr/ppa;sudo apt-get update;sudo apt-get install cqrlog

This is the error report:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
cqrlog : Depends: libhamlib2 (>= 1.2.10) but it is not installable
Depends: libmariadbclient-dev but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

I could not find any solution to this, although there was a German OM who reported he solved the problem but obviously refused to share the information on the forum?
I can use any help UI can get! Thank you in advance!

HI Freddy!

libhamlib2 requirement is not very hard. 1.2.10 is required and now official version is 4.4.
Have you tried to install hamlib alone?

Someting like: apt get install hamlib, or apt get install libhamlib. Or if you are using synaptic or similar packet manager try to search package with word hamlib, libhamlib or rigctld
Sorry, I am fedora user and so cannot give exact commands for your Ubuntu.

You can also try to install MariaDB alone. It shoudl remove Mysql that is, I think, default with Ubuntu.
Look at this message https://www.cqrlog.com/comment/9886#comment-9886

Once you succeed to install those you can try cqlrog installing again. And if that does not work you can use the

Complete application directory for other distributions:

from download section of this web page.

Read this message: https://www.cqrlog.com/node/3160 it might work as well for Ubuntu as Kubuntu
