Will Ubuntu 19.10 be getting support for Brave

After trying to install Brave on Ubuntu 19.10 everything goes fine until sudo apt update and this comes up:

E: Failed to fetch https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com/dists/eoan/InRelease  403  Forbidden [IP: 443]
E: The repository 'https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com eoan InRelease' is not signed.
N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.
N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.

After looking into it it is because Brave does not currently support 19.10, yet if I install Brave on a 19.04 machine and update to 19.10 Brave can no longer update but boots fine.

So my question is, Does the brave team intend on supporting Ubuntu 19.10?

Hear, hear! There are several other threads about Eoan, my bet is that support is eventually coming, for now you can temporarily disable the Brave repo in Software & Updates > Other Software (or by editing /etc/apt/sources.list.d/), and then try turning it back on in a bit…

Sad to see, but thank you for showing me how to disable it for the time being.

There is a fix coming! And also a workaround here:

Very glad to hear, thank you for letting me know!
