Install Transmission with web interface on UbuntuDDE Remix 20.04

UPDATE 05/11/2020
  If you would set "rpc-authentication-required": false 
  The only  one entry "rpc-password" which gets updated
  upon reboot wouldn't be longer important and
  correspondingly patching of settings.json under  
 /etc/transmission-daemon  wouldn't be needed any more.
 Otherwise, check any "howto" kind of
There could be many reasons why you might want to have Transmission web interface. One of these is when your office doesn’t allow access to torrents but you still wish to download them with only one intend to get the job done as soon as possible.
Procedure works stable on Ubuntu 20.04 only when 
/etc/transmission-daemon/setting.json gets manually updated
after every reboot, otherwise, i.e. when attempting to use soft link ,
only works every time. Actually, patching and reloading
transmission-daemon might be placed /etc/rc.local.

$ sudo apt-get install transmission-gtk transmission-cli \
   transmission-common \
$ sudo usermod -a -G debian-transmission boris
$ sudo chgrp -R debian-transmission /home/boris/Downloads/
$ sudo chmod -R 775 /home/boris/Downloads/

If your box is connected to LAN via linux-bridge
$ sudo apt install bridge-utils
Now start transmission-daemon 
$ sudo systemctl start transmission-daemon
UPDATE /etc/transmission-daemon/settings.json
 "download-dir": "/home/boris/Downloads",
 "rpc-enabled": true,
 "rpc-host-whitelist": "",
 "rpc-host-whitelist-enabled": true,
 "rpc-password": "passwrd",
"rpc-port": 9091,
"rpc-url": "/transmission/",
"rpc-username": "",
"rpc-whitelist": ", *.*.*.*",

Now reload transmission-daemon to keep updates safe
$ sudo systemctl reload transmission-daemon

   Connection to 9091 via

   Runtime snapshot on bare metal
