Thanks for your feedback about Ubuntu Studio.

Fr your problem, it's clear:

CMake Error at /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/cmake/Qt5/Qt5Config.cmake:28
  Could not find a package configuration file provided by
  "Qt5WebEngineWidgets" with any of the following names:


  Add the installation prefix of "Qt5WebEngineWidgets" to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH
  or set "Qt5WebEngineWidgets_DIR" to a directory containing one of the above
  files.  If "Qt5WebEngineWidgets" provides a separate development package or
  SDK, be sure it has been installed.
Call Stack (most recent call first):
  core/CMakeLists.txt:66 (find_package)

QtWebEngine framework component is missing (Google Chromium Qt wrapper)

If you cannot compile QtWebEngine, digiKam can failback to QtWebKit,
the previous framework to render web pages, but this one is not
maintained by the Qt team. We are still compatible with this one as
MinGW compilation is not supported by QtWebEngine for Windows target.

digiKam dependencies are listed here :
