Install DSpace 7 on Ubuntu 18.04

The instructions here will show you how to install DSpace 7 on Ubuntu 18.04. It is important to note that DSpace 7 has not yet been released at the time of writing this guide. One of the main changes in DSpace 7 is that it has been split into a front-end and a back-end. The front-end is the user interface and the back-end is mostly used to serve the REST-APIs and is not user friendly.
