I use ubuntu 18.04 and the package manager has a flathub version in there

then in the command window type 'pkg install -forge signal'  for the signal package

Flatpak is a container/isolation tool. I.e. it creates an environment for the application whose package is supposed to be built in a manner imitating absence of libraries at system level, so any needed for the application libraries won't conflict with the system ones. E.g. different from system libraries versions can be used.

Flatpak does NOT resolve the issues of the packaging system of the application for which one wants to build a package.

The fundamental problem with Octave is that its packaging system is broken. From my analysis of the Octave packaging system made several years ago the system has never been properly spec'ed/designed.
