The only deb package available for the protonmail bridge (to the best of my 
knowledge) can be found here:

By the way, I got all these other packages installed with no issues. However, 
I cannot test the bridge package, as it only comes in amd64 (no 32-bit); and 
besides, using protonmail with kmail or other client is only available for 
paid accounts. 

Ubuntu and Debian are not quite interchangeable, and I found that a lot of 
packages that were problematic before (when I ran Kubuntu, up until 16.04) 
are no longer a problem in Debian.
