Don't go for the run file.
Either download and install the .deb file: sudo dpkg -i --force-depends boinc(whateverversion).deb
or,
add the development repositories:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:costamagnagianfranco/boinc
sudo apt update
sudo apt install boinc

No need to try to reinvent the wheel, just follow the advice in https://boinc.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=14023
