The php7.4 bug's DpkgTerminalLog.txt shows the user has both nginx and
apache2 installed, as Sergio already noted.  Perhaps they're configured
to use the same port, and since apache2 starts second it fails to start
up?  I don't think this one has to do with the PHP upgrade paths.

For the other bug, looking at DpkgHistoryLog.txt the user installed
filezilla using packagekit (via Software Updater presumably), and then
started hitting some (unreported) error.  They tried using
`apt --fix-broken install` a bunch of times, then did `apt autoremove`
that uninstalled a bunch of packages including libapache2-mod-php7.4.
Following that, the user then purged apache2 and apt remove apache2*.
The next day, they tried upgrading their system, re-installed apache2,
and found at that point that modphp errored on installation.  The
triaging has been correctly done - we're missing the error info needed
to see why modphp failed - however I think this person's system was in
an inconsistent state, so it may be hard to boil this down to an
actionable fix.
