Ubuntu does not update packages in a given version (e.g. 20.04), except for:

  * security issues: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SecurityTeam/FAQ
  * high-impact bugs, safe bug fixes for applications, etc. through the
    Stable Release Updates (SRU) process:
  * kernel, Xorg, etc. via the Hardware Enablement (HWE) process:

Unless you're asking because of a security issue, the second one (SRU) 
is what you're looking for. You'd have to identify specific issue(s), 
file bug(s) with clear patches, and get someone to sponsor the upload. 
Also note that the coturn package is in Universe, which means it is 
community supported. You will most likely have to do all the fix work 
yourself (i.e. prepare the patched version and upload a .debdiff). So 
generally, in a situation like this, I'd backport the fix(es) myself, 
upload them to a PPA, and then decide how much I care about spending the 
work to get that pushed into Ubuntu itself.
