I was able to install Abaqus 2021 on my Ubuntu / Pop OS 20.04 computer using the following steps:

  1. I started a CentOS 7 virtual machine that I have and ran the Abaqus 2021 installer on the VM.
  2. I copied the Abaqus 2021 files to my Ubuntu computer
  3. Everything works!

The Abaqus 2021 installer does not run on Ubuntu since it is an unsupported OS. It may be possible to modify a number of installation files in order to trick the installer to think the computer runs a supported OS, but I think it is easier to simply run the installer on a different computer and then copying the file.
