Neither rdp protocol or client is installed by default in Ubuntu. Thus do following to enable:

# Install from Ubuntu servers (Ubuntu 20.04)
# > Note: this version on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS does not support 'H264 GFX' as requires libfreedp2
sudo apt install remmina remmina-plugin-rdp

# Install from PPA (Ubuntu 18.04)
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:remmina-ppa-team/remmina-next
sudo apt update
sudo apt install remmina remmina-plugin-rdp remmina-plugin-secret
sudo killall remmina


You requested an H264 GFX mode for ser, but your libfreedp does not support H264. Please check colour depth settings.
