The Scribus PPA does not currently support Focal yet, but you may want
to watch https://launchpad.net/~scribus/+archive/ubuntu/ppa as I
expect it will show up there eventually. In general, the first six
months after a new Ubuntu LTS is released it is not recommended to
upgrade, precisely because issues like this have not been ironed out.

I looked for viable alternatives but could not find any, sorry.

As JLuc mentioned, many people on this list think 1.5.5 is an
improvement over 1.4.6 so you may want to consider moving in that

With kind regards,
