You are using a version of libssl1.1 from a PPA, and this version apparently cannot be installed on Ubuntu systems with isync from the Ubuntu repositories.
This is outside the responsibility of Ubuntu. I suggest that you contact the provider of that PPA, or report it on his issue tracker

problem can be resolved by manual install of isync from Disco 19.04
