Studio Controls 2.1.64 is not meant to be released to the public as it's very 
much a rough, pre-release beta. That said, a mistake happened recently and 
this was the only way to correct it.

Basically, I had accidentally uploaded 2.1.64-beta to the Backports PPA (for 
Groovy). When I had discovered the error, I aborted the build, but the damage 
was already done and it was reporting that version as available for Focal as 
well. So, the only way to fix this was to create a package versioned as 2.1.64-
really2.1.4 to trick the system into downgrading the package.

Trust me, you do NOT want to be running 2.1.64 (future 2.2) at this point. It 
has a lot of issues and is causing problems even for myself. But if you REALLY 
want it, you can go to https://launchpad.net/~ubuntustudio-dev and look for 
the Studio Controls Staging PPA. There you will find it, but be warned: it's 
not at all ready for production, and you WILL find bugs.
