When I hit sudo dpkg -i audiorelay it says that it is unable to install as libflac8 is not available:
(Reading database ... 273547 files and directories currently installed.)

dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of audiorelay:
audiorelay depends on libflac8; however:
Package libflac8 is not installed.
dpkg: error processing package audiorelay (--install):
dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
Errors were encountered while processing:
And it seems that there is no way to install libflac8 for Ubuntu 23. All the Ubuntu forum answers with downloadable links to libflac8 show up with 404 Not Found. There is a way to at least install it using --ignore-dependencies but it renders the package manager as completely unusable. This is because the audio relay package is installed in an incorrect manner which then doesn’t allow you to install any other package until and unless you completely remove audio relay package.
I am sure that because of libflac8 not being available, it doesn’t sound on the tablet as it should. The sound is very low, and it ends up with emitting white noise for some reason.

You might want to run 'apt --fix-broken install' to correct these.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
audiorelay : Depends: libflac8 but it is not installable
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt --fix-broken install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
Did anyone tackle it so far? If so, how did you do it. And if anyone has any links to libflac8 for installation for Ubuntu 23.10 then kindly share it.
