FWIW, no version of Debian or Ubuntu has lz4 >= 1.7.5 currently.
There's an upload of 1.8.0 in Debian's experimental suite, but not one
into a suite that will end up in a release.

This is apparently due to the incompatible change in versioning, which
has caused some troubles for projects using lz4 (e.g.,
https://github.com/systemd/systemd/commit/3d4cf7de48a74726694abbaa09f9804b845ff3ba).
