How do I install the proprietary AMD video drivers in Ubuntu 20.04

How do I install the proprietary AMD video drivers in Ubuntu 20.04

 
What is the correct way to install proprietary AMD video drivers in Ubuntu 20.04?
I have an AMD A10-5800K APU and I am trying to install AMD Proprietary video drivers.
The 64 bit ubuntu option on AMD’s driver download page (link below) has me download a driver called fglrx_15.201-0ubuntu1_amd64_UB_14.01.deb

https://www.amd.com/en/support/apu/a…adeon-hd-7660d

But the directions assume I have a downloaded a file with a tar.gz extension.
Also, I have read in other places that “fglrx” drivers are dead.

The 64 bit linux option on the (above) download page has me download a folder called “amd-catalyst-15.9-linux-installer-15.201.1151-x86.x86_64.zip”.
The executable installer within complains:
ERROR: Detected X Server Version ‘X server 1.20.8-64a is not supported.

So what is the correct method to install?
