I have never used the native Kindle app but an alternative depending on what features you need may be to use Calibre which can read/write to Kindles.

Not sure what version is packaged with 20.04 but 20.10 comes with 4.99.12 (either from the software store or install via command line sudo apt-get install calibre).

5.5.0 is current latest version which you can download and do a binary install by following instructions on the developer site
https://calibre-ebook.com/download_linux

Use Kindle Cloud Reader (a web app that runs through Chrome) which allows you to access your Kindle books through Google Chrome browser.

You’ll have to have Google Chrome installed, which you can download for Ubuntu here.

As an alternative in 01.2024, you can use: https://read.amazon.com/kindle-library instead.
