I have the official Amazon client, and I have been using it for years. When I upgraded to 22.04, the client began to crash on every launch. It seems to be an error with OpenSSL

$ ./workspacesclient              
No usable version of libssl was found
[1] 23961 IOT instruction (core dumped) ./workspacesclient

I did attempt to load an older libssl with

$ sudo aptitude install libssl-dev

But that did not change the behavior in any way that I could see.

I've found a temporary workaround, although I can't say I love it. The workspaces client is using needs OpenSSL 1.x. Ubuntu 22.04 does not ship with this, nor is it readily available in the standard repos. I was able to manually install the package with

sudo apt-get install ./libssl1.1_1.1.1l-1ubuntu1.3_amd64.deb

At which point the client will detect the older library and run. Now I just need to remember to remove that package when they update so I don't have old security packages lying around.

Note: If you get a 404 error on the wget step, the library probably has had another version jump. Go to, search for libssl1.1_1.1.1l-1ubuntu, and grab the link for the most recent version. (As of 5/10/2022, it's 1.3.)
