Well ... Ubuntu stops offering non snap packages for some software.
If you want to use that software, it is either use snap or change your distro
to something other than Ubuntu.

For Debian it states, download from official lik, untar, execute.

I do not use Mystic.
(and I have seen so many critical bugs in it, that I surely never will ...
But if it is statically compiled it should be no isse.
If it is not statically compiled, you need to supply it with the necessary
libraries. (I assume it is static, so copying should work on ANY linux)

The file system is completely irrelevant.
As long as linux supports it, you are good to go.
The important thing are the needed libraries.
You can check with ldd.
Here is an output for a dynamically compiled golded:
