Totally, dude! You can use the following command to do that:

Code:
sudo apt-get install dselect
sudo dselect update
sudo dpkg --set-selections < package_list_file
sudo apt-get dselect-upgrade

This will install all the packages listed in the file onto the fresh Ubuntu 20.04 installation. Just make sure that the file is located in the correct directory and has the correct file name.
