Entering the command without sudo results in:

ffmpeg -i '/data3/Media2/Renamed/Billy Idol/1994 The Best/Billy Idol - The
Best.ape' -acodec flac '/data3/Media2/Renamed/Billy Idol/1994 The
Best/Billy Idol - The Best.flac'

Command 'ffmpeg' not found, but can be installed with:

sudo snap install ffmpeg  # version 4.1.4, or
sudo apt  install ffmpeg  # version 7:4.2.4-1ubuntu0.1

See 'snap info ffmpeg' for additional versions.
