Cannot checkout SVN repos with Ubuntu 20.04

I updated a Docker container from Ubuntu 19.10 to Ubuntu 20.04, and now svn checkouts are failing:

Step 11/12 : RUN svn checkout
---> Running in c8f5b0058679
svn: E170013: Unable to connect to a repository at URL '' returned a non-zero code: 1

The internet tells me that this might be caused by old SSL libraries on the server which newer SVN versions refuse to use.

Things work when I downgrade to Ubuntu 19.10.

    yes that is correct. GitHub lets you check out from git repositories using svn. This gets you only the last commit and not all of history (and all tarballs ever used).
