OpenLP will not load on Ubuntu 20.04

I recently installed Ubuntu focal as a new install on my desktop computer.
I installed OpenLP from the standard repositories and got this when I went to start it.
$ Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/openlp", line 27, in <module>
    from openlp.core.common import is_win, is_macosx
  File "/usr/share/openlp/openlp/", line 26, in <module>
    from openlp import core, plugins
  File "/usr/share/openlp/openlp/core/", line 43, in <module>
    from openlp.core.ui.mainwindow import MainWindow
  File "/usr/share/openlp/openlp/core/ui/", line 29, in <module>
    from distutils import dir_util
ImportError: cannot import name 'dir_util' from 'distutils' (/usr/lib/python3.8/distutils/
When I try to install it from the PPA I get this:
E: The repository ' focal Release' does not have a Release file.
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.
Can you suggest the best way to get OpenLP running?
