URSim Controller on Ubuntu 20.04. No libxmlrpc for i386 available

I have been trying to get the URSim Controller working with Ubuntu 20.04 and have everything up and running with the exception of the controller. Through the forums it seems to come back to the failed dependy in the install files, which should be updated to:

Dependencies_32: Changelibxmlrpc-c++8 libxmlrpc-core-c3tolibxmlrpc-c++8v5`

This is fine for Ubuntu 18, but when going to Ubuntu 20, this has one specific problem. There is no libxmlrpc-c++8v5 for 32 bit architecture available.

However, according to the Ubuntu website:
[Ubuntu – Package Search Results – libxmlrpc]

  • bionic (18.04LTS) (libs): Lightweight RPC library based on XML and HTTP [C++ runtime libraries] [ universe ]
    1.33.14-8build1: amd64 arm64 armhf i386 ppc64el s390x
  • focal (20.04LTS) (libs): Lightweight RPC library based on XML and HTTP [C++ runtime libraries] [ universe ]
    1.33.14-8build2: amd64 arm64 armhf ppc64el s390x

You can see that going from 18.04 to 20.04 the 32bit architecture is dropped.

I have seen a few youtube videos showing the URSim up and running on Ubuntu 20. Is anyone able to help out on how to get around this problem?
