Yes--no good.

Ubuntu Software lists emu2, which I installed. But launching from the 
former--crashed emu2. Also neither Activities GUI nor apropos in 
Terminal could find it. So I removed emu2!

That only gave this.

console-cyrillic/bionic,bionic 0.9-17 all
   Cyrillic fonts and keyboard layouts for Linux console

xfonts-terminus-dos/bionic,bionic 4.40-2 all
   Fixed-width fonts for DOS encodings

I was out of luck.

In Ubuntu Software, I searched for "DOS emulator".
Getting this list:
	* dosbox-jz;
	* emu2;
	* jindosbox;
	* jinhjdosbox;
	* DOSBox-X; and
	* DOSBox Emulator.
