The defaut filezilla may be not working on your current Ubuntu,
for this reason you will need a new version of the FTP client.

1.Add repository:

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu xenial-getdeb apps" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/getdeb.list'

2. Install the key:

wget -q -O - http://archive.getdeb.net/getdeb-archive.key | sudo apt-key add -

3. Launch Software Updater and update.

4. Upgrade in the terminal:

sudo apt update

5. Install in terminal: ( if you have other version, this command will replace the old one )

sudo apt install filezilla
