Click on the *nix instructions
which says jgeboski is no longer maintaining and dequis
is taking over.
So the instructions are all for jgeboski and the build version stops
at 19.10 (which I think you could still use on 20.04) and the public key
is for jgeboski. The note says - Dec 2019 - redownload the key if
expired - but after 45 min of waiting at the terminal - nothing installs.
I do not see how to install this protocol now for pidgin

> I'm not sure what URLs do you mean, but for example Archlinux libpurple package uses released tar.gz from this URL https://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/pidgin/Pidgin and the URL loads fine. It also has last timestamp update, which is around 4 months ago, which I assume is the last release date. 4 months is not a big timespan for a release, so unless you meant something else, libpurple seem to be active.
