Ubuntu and other modern Linux distibutions use udev to manage device files when USB devices are added and removed. By default, udev will create a device with read-only permission which will not allow to you download code. You must place the udev rules below into a file named /etc/udev/rules.d/49-micronucleus.rules

These rules are adapted from those used for Teensy boards, maintained here

# UDEV Rules for Micronucleus boards including the Digispark.
# This file must be placed at:
# /etc/udev/rules.d/49-micronucleus.rules    (preferred location)
#   or
# /lib/udev/rules.d/49-micronucleus.rules    (req'd on some broken systems)
# After this file is copied, physically unplug and reconnect the board.
SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="16d0", ATTRS{idProduct}=="0753", MODE:="0666"
KERNEL=="ttyACM*", ATTRS{idVendor}=="16d0", ATTRS{idProduct}=="0753", MODE:="0666", ENV{ID_MM_DEVICE_IGNORE}="1"
# If you share your linux system with other users, or just don't like the
# idea of write permission for everybody, you can replace MODE:="0666" with
# OWNER:="yourusername" to create the device owned by you, or with
# GROUP:="somegroupname" and mange access using standard unix groups.
