Quite disappointed here : I’ve just bought a second-hand Samsung S7 because it is in the list of easy-installer Windows and Linux, but I don’t have Ubuntu, and you don’t provide any RPM of easy-installer !!!
That is not serious, because I’m sure you’ve got a RPM somewhere …
Can you tell me where I can find it ?

OK I used the difficult way and it works. But I still suggest to provide a rpm of easy-installer !!!
but I don’t have Ubuntu
They chose the snap way to account for that, link is at the end of
https://doc.e.foundation/easy-installer-linux at “Reference guide to install on multiple OS with snap”.
Which leads to https://snapcraft.io/easy-installer, which has instructions for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Ubuntu (yes, that too)
Obviously they can’t win, because “I want [insert RPM or something else not covered here], or I want instructions for [insert Linux distribution not mentioned on the page here]” in 3 … 2 … 1 …

I understand selection of snap, but wonder would it require much work to offer also flatpak at flathub.
I won’t install snap myself, but on the other hand I like to use terminal. Still some would prefer flatpak and together with snap it would cover about all need for linux in easiest way.
What about using an appimage? That way everyone can use it, without needing to install something extra

One can always build it from source.
I agree with you. I think it would really make sense to have Easy Installer available as Flatpak.
Only giving non-Ubuntu GNU/Linux users the choice between using snap or building from source is not the appropriate thing to do in my opinion, if you want /e/OS to reach more potential users.
Also, a presence on Flathub would be an additional way to advertise for /e/OS and Murena.
I’ve seen https://gitlab.e.foundation/e/backlog/-/issues/5545 and https://github.com/flathub/flathub/pull/3394 and I was wondering, what’s the status of this ? @nicofonk @GaelDuval
You can also install Ubuntu via gnome boxes, and then install easy installer. Just five minutes of work.
OpenAndroidInstaller seems promising.

I used it to install a ROM on an S6 edge. Worked quite ok.
