According to I have a Ubuntu 20 server and I would like to install a software from internet but the software is not standard software.
from Windows OS, I need to go to the website and download it to install. How about linux command?

How can I check that my server also have GUI?
normally I login to use the server by SecureCRT how about interface? How to use it from ourside?

This isn't quite as easy as you might think.

If you have Xming/XLaunch you can run Xwindows GUI on Windows.
There is commercial software for this also Xceed Hummingbird and a few others.

Many 3rd party vendors, will have a way to add a repo to download their software.
Downloading non-standard/non-vendor software is always risky.

It is possible to download .deb and .rpm files to windows and then transfer them to the
Linux system. SecureCRT comes with something called SecureFX (file transfer)
.

The third option is VNC, it's kind of like a web browser for the GUI on your Linux box.
Again, these aren't always easy to set-up.

Or you can use x2go server/client which use ssh connection or xrdp, unlike vnc these are also both secure because x2go uses ssh and xrdp uses ssl for your connection.
