If you had the Ubuntu official indi installed before, you should remove them ALL first.
Some packages without 'indi' prefix should be removed like:
sudo dpkg --remove libplayeronecamera2
sudo dpkg --remove libfishcamp1

Then do:
sudo apt --fix-broken install

Thanks for the suggestions. Alas they didn't work.

As this is a new install, not yet a production machine, I just started over and did a clean install of Ubuntu 22.04.

After performing all Ubuntu updates, Kstars installed fine. Phht, go figure.

Thanks again for the help.

LATER EDIT: FIXED
sudo apt-get remove brltty
then do a restart for good measure.

ORIGINAL POST
Spoke too soon, seems there is a problem with the eqmod driver or the kernel driver for serial, my HEQ5 mount no longer connects to INDI via FTDI cable. Had to resort to my windows setup last night (the mount worked there).
Here's some context:

dmesg

[ 5289.157590] ftdi_sio 2-1:1.0: device disconnected

Here's the Ekos log for the mount, seems to only find my laptops' 4G Modem:

Later edit: After removing brittly still getting the following errors:

Just re-upgraded to Ubuntu Mate 22.04
All installed ok, indi-full & Kstars, connected all my equipment except mount (it's too far away) connected.

Thanks Jaseem, great stuff...

Just had lots of problems connecting to USB and serial devices due to the brltty.services. This is what finally worked for me (Ubuntu Mate 22.04 on RPi4).
sudo systemctl stop brltty-udev.service
sudo systemctl mask brltty-udev.service
sudo systemctl stop brltty.service
sudo systemctl disable brltty.service
sudo reboot
you can check these service are inactive/dead by doing
sudo systemctl status brltty-udev.service
sudo systemctl status brltty.service
After doing the above I was able to recognise my arduino based devices and other usb devices.

I also found that you need to install linux-modules-extra-raspi to recognise any arduino uno based devices.

So the final verdict? Will an update to v1.9.6 stable work with 22.04 or do I have to go to the nightly? I'm particularly concerned with the pl2303 converter. I have to run an older version for it to communicate with my EQ6R. Anyone running latest (stable or nightly) with an EQ6R on 22.04?

Not got a SkyWatcher mount, but everything (indi-full, kstars) installed without issues on the last iteration with the stable build.

Yeah working fine here with EQ6R and CP210x. You just need to remove brltty package otherwise it grab /dev/ttyUSB0 so eqmod doesn't work.

Just updated to 22.04.1 and of course, my pl2303 is not working again. Can you tell me please what kernel you're running? (uname -r)

OK - looks like the pl2303 bug was fixed in 5.18.15-051815-generic. It's working now.
