Any idea?

Note: I have Ubuntu 20.04 x64.

The PPA you try to use doesn't support your ubuntu version.

Read this note: https://launchpad.net/~webupd8team/+archive/ubuntu/java:

...
The PPA supports Ubuntu 18.10, 18.04, 16.04, 14.04 and 12.04.
...

Try to find a different way to install Java 8.

e.g.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt install openjdk-8-jdk

Note: read this article to select the default Java version if you have installed multiple Java versions.
