    dooshra ,We apologize for the trouble. Our existing version of Foxit Reader for Linux's OS requirements are as folllows:
    Ubuntu Desktop 14.04 ~ 16.10
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server 6.x (64-bit) ~ 7.x
    SUSE 12 Linux Enterprise Server
    OpenSUSE 13.2
    OpenSUSE Leap 42.x
    So it doesn't support Ubuntu 20.04.
    In addition,due to human resources limited,our developers have stopped fixing issues and developing new features for Foxit Reader for Linux. But our Dev team will We will produce a brand-new version of Foxit PDF Editor for Linux which will be based on our existing Foxit PDF Editor for windows desktop to be a substitute version of the current one.

    Currently,we suggest you try out our Foxit Reader for windows desktop if you have another device which runs windows OS(windows 7,windows8 or windows 10). Please download it from our official download center below:

    Any further questions or concerns,please contact us any time.

              I was having the same problem.
              Doing the following fixed it:

              Start Foxit without opening any pdf file. Go to Edit --> Preferences. Go to Updater and uncheck. Go also to General and Disable ConnectedPDF features. I haven't tested if only one step would be sufficient.
