My situation is I have just successfully installed an Ubuntu Eoan 19.10 server image onto an SD card and booted it up on a raspberry pi 4. I have no worries with the actual installation but DON'T have any access to internet via ethernet. My 2 options are usb tethering (which is failing miserably due to the android phone defaulting to file transfer during the boot process of the pi) and a WPA2 wireless hotspot on the android phone.

I can easily connect to a wpa2 wireless hotspot from the CLI, which I have done many many times, but am missing the package "iw" in this installation. This is the only block to me getting the pi online and getting a DE installed.

Normally I'd go to the ubuntu packages site and go to one of the mirrors listed however no mirrors are listed and a notice to use a package manager is posted there instead --the ubuntu package download page for iw_5.3-1_arm64.deb-- (link)

I have managed to get a debian download of that file but am a bit reluctant to use it, I would prefer to use the ubuntu archives for this but it seems to be blocked for some unknown (to me) reasons.

Does anyone know where I could source a deb file from the ubuntu eoan repositories for "iw_5.3-1_arm64.deb"?
Also I'd be interested to find out why the ubuntu packages site no longer shows download mirrors for getting such packages like they used to.

TIA, yeti.

Edit: update: I managed to get the android phone to default to tethering but still didn't work, no network still.
Some good news; the downloaded debian "iw" package has exactly the same md5 hash as listed on the ubuntu packages site so I'll give it a go.
