Has any progress been made in making a process available to install LilyPond 2.20 or 2.21 on Ubuntu 18.04? Back in March of this year (2019), there was a brief discussion about installing Guile 1.8 on Ubuntu 18.04, so that ly 2.20 could run. I tried to follow the suggestions, but was unsuccessful. If someone would be willing to work with me, perhaps off-list, and we were successful, maybe we could post a working process to enable others to install and use ly 2.20.

Build guile 1.8 yourself, then lilypond. You even could use gub:

git clone
cd gub
touch regtests/ignore

make lilypond

will take some time but builds a full lilypond distribution if some basic development tools and texlive are installed. I don't remember exactly which packages are required, but I wrote about that some months ago in lilypond-devel. Have a look at the archives.
