I'm currently maintaining unity-editor and unityhub and I don't think they
will allow redistribution of binaries.
They even dropped the official Ubuntu packages in favor of their custom
installers. And honestly it makes more sense to do it this way because the
engine is a big self contained blob and users usually need to have several
different versions installed at the same time to patch old projects etc.
