Well, first of all Ubuntu is not a supported platform for the
Shibboleth SP. (And Ubuntu doesn't seem to support the Shib SP either,
as it's in their "universe" repo.)

Their bug report is here:

(Russ is also right that libcurl4 is built against libssl1.1 in Ubuntu

I guess you're left with building the SP and its dependencies from
source.  (Not overly attractive, I reckon.)

I don't think any of that changes with the upcoming Shib SP 3.0
(ignoring that that isn't released and also not packaged for Debian
yet by the Debian Packaging Team).

I don't know what SWITCH has done to make their Shib SP packages
installable on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (if that in fact works):
(Note that use of these packages is not supported by SWITCH unless
you're a SWITCHaai "federation partner".)
