Correct, Swift 5.2.4 was the first to bring Ubuntu 20.04 support (see the downloads page). Generally, try to run the latest Swift version, even if you wrote your code for Swift 5.2, you should use the latest Swift version. So as of today, I'd recommend you use Swift 5.3.3 which should not require any code changes on your end.

If you always use the latest Swift version you will benefit from security fixes, bug fixes, and performance improvements that went into the language. Swift is also source stable, so if you find a program that compiles with 5.2.1 but not with 5.3.3, that'd be a bug (please report).
