How can I enable remote desktop in my linode?

I have tried with this guide https://www.linode.com/docs/guides/install-vnc-on-ubuntu-20-04/ but unfutunatly is not up to date, the packages are not avialable anymore.
Any alternative idea?

I just ran through the Install VNC on Ubuntu 20.04 using an Ubuntu 20.04LTS Linode and didn't run into any issues. I will say, make sure to run the updates on your system before installing the Gnome packages or you will get an error:

sudo apt update -y && sudo apt upgrade -y

As far as alternatives, you can deploy the Apache Guacamole or the Kali Linux Marketplace apps for a desktop experience.
