Ubuntu and Devuan repos are not compatible.

Check this https://linuxconfig.org/install-package … bian-linux

But be aware. It is not supported scenario. You can break your operating system. Before doing so, think carefully about whether it’s worth it.

And that about this, from https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Ubuntu/ForDebianDevelopers :

Packages

Most source packages in all Ubuntu components (about 4 in 5 at the time of this writing) are copied unmodified from Debian. There is also software in the archive which has been packaged by Ubuntu developers, and packages created specifically for Ubuntu. There are other external package sources available (e.g. Gooogle Chrome or Launchpad PPAs.)

In some cases, the same upstream software is packaged separately in Ubuntu and in Debian, though this is to be avoided unless there is a justifiable reason to do so.

Where packages in Debian and Ubuntu have a common heritage, the packages use version numbers which reflect this.

And then... I must tell that Devuan packages are taken from Debian to, most of them, with a few exceptions. ;-)

The thing to think about then taking packages from Ubuntu or use repos from Ubuntu is to chose a version that is as close to the Devuan version you are running. Take a look among the packages to see their versions before you chose Ubuntu repo.
