unable to install package 'libperconaserverclient20' on ubuntu 20.04

tiemeztiemez Current User Role Beginner

i've installed percona-xtradb-cluster-57 and the cluster is running well,

When i try to install the 'libperconaserverclient20' package on ubuntu 20.04, it tries to install the percona-server-common-5.7, which i don't need....because i already have percona-xtradb-cluster-common-5.7 installed.

Because of this, i get an error while installing this package via apt:

apt install libperconaserverclient20
