After upgrading to Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS / jammy, I am encountering an 
"value out of range: underflow" error.

Now I had forgotten it, but last time I encountered this, it seemed 
related to an issue with an attempted update by myself to PROJ 8.2.1 on 
Ubuntu 20.04, while Canonical's Ubuntu distribution had PostGIS compiled 
with PROJ 6.3.1:


While that error was caused by myself upgrading PROJ, the Canonical 
Ubuntu comes pre-installed with PROJ 8.2.1 only, even though my 
PostGIS full version read-out, also installed via Canonical, shows 
PostGIS having been compiled with PROJ 6.3.1:

POSTGIS="3.2.2 628da50" [EXTENSION] PGSQL="140" 
GEOS="3.10.2-CAPI-1.16.0" PROJ="6.3.1" LIBXML="2.9.10" LIBJSON="0.13.1" 
LIBPROTOBUF="1.3.3" WAGYU="0.5.0 (Internal)"

Is this a packaging error by Canonical? Shouldn't they have compiled 
PostGIS with PROJ 8.2.1 for jammy, if that is the default and only 
available version in Ubuntu 22.04.1 / jammy?

There is also no option available to downgrade the PROJ version, only 
8.2.1 is shown in the Synaptic Package Manager when looking under 
"Properties/Versions", and the "Package/Force Version" menu option is 
greyed out as well.
