"owncloud-client : Depends: libsecret-tools but it is not installable" Ubuntu 20.10

Hi I try to install owncloud on my Ubuntu 20.10 but when I run sudo apt install owncloud-client I get the following error

Reading package lists… Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information… Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable

The following information may help to resolve the situation:

owncloud-client : Depends: libsecret-tools but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Did you install using this instructions?

yes, as suggested by my university website

First, I thought it might be because of 20.04 so I upgraded to 20.10 but still the same issue persisted

I was not able to reproduce in a clean Docker:

docker run --rm -ti ubuntu:20.04

I used the commands from the instructions page:

root@c6d3a3dc9059:/# history
    1  apt update && apt install curl wget sudo gnupg -y
    2  wget -nv https://download.owncloud.com/desktop/ownCloud/stable/latest/linux/Ubuntu_20.04/Release.key -O - | sudo apt-key add -
    3  echo 'deb https://download.owncloud.com/desktop/ownCloud/stable/latest/linux/Ubuntu_20.04/ /' | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/owncloud.list
    4  sudo apt update
    5  sudo apt install owncloud-client
    6  owncloudcmd --version
    7  history
