Ubuntu 19.10 was installed, booting (via F12) from a USB stick burnt from the ISO image. The whole disk was overwritten, treated as a single drive, and selecting encrypted drive. The laptop is connected to a Dell 34" monitor (U3419W) through a Dell WD19TB Thunderbolt docking station via USB-C. Could not get the monitor's speakers working with HDMI connection but worked just fine when connecting a DisplayPort cable. This results in three displays available (laptop, monitor through HDMI and monitor through DisplayPort). From Settings, turn the HDMI display off.
