    Did you do an sudo apt update first?

    You need to make sure the Community (universe) repository is enabled.
    See if it's checked (enabled) in Software and Updates.
    If it's not, check it to enable it.

    synaptic:

    The thing about App Center is that it defaults to display snap packages only. See screenshot. But the .deb package is also in there: Change "Filter by" setting to "Debian Packages" and it will show up.
