Rstudio Server startup error with libssl

I'm trying to install RStudio Server on my Ubuntu 20.04 LTS release. I followed the instructions and it appeared to install just fine, but when I try to start the server, I get an error about libssl:

/usr/lib/rstudio-server/bin/rserver: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

A few searches showed others with this problem, but I wasn't able to figure out a solution that worked. Any ideas?

Which deb file did you download? This looks like you downloaded RStudio Server for an older version of Ubuntu.

rstudio server 1.4.1106 which I think is I think the newest one as per this page.

Ok. And did you download the package for Ubuntu 16 or the one for Ubuntu 18/20?

I think it was, but of course they have the same file names ...

I think I also may have installed it with apt instead of gdebi.

In any case, I removed the package and followed the instructions to the letter, and it works!! Thanks.
