Can't upgrade LyX on Focal Fossa

I just updated my laptop from Linux Mint 19.3 (based on Ubuntu Bionic
Beaver) to 20.0 (based on Ubuntu Focal Fossa). During the update, LyX
184.108.40.206 (the current version from the Canonical repo) was installed. I
added Liv's PPA (with no error messages) and updated the cache, but Mint
still thinks 220.127.116.11 is the most recent version. The PPA info looks
correct to me ("http://ppa.launchpad.net/lyx-devel/release/ubuntu focal
main"), so the only thing I can think of is a configuration glitch in
the PPA. I noticed that the Focal version there ends with "~ppa2" rather
than "~ppa1", but that's not unique to Focal so I doubt it's the problem.
Is anybody else having problems upgrading to 18.104.22.168 for Focal via the PPA?
