Seems that Ubuntu dropped ecryptfs-utils off the isos with:

https://bazaar.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-core-dev/ubuntu-seeds/platform.bionic/revision/2173

as they were dropping the encrypt /home option in GTK front end of ubiquity

This bug was fixed in the package ubiquity - 18.04.10

---------------
ubiquity (18.04.10) bionic; urgency=medium

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Update translations from Launchpad.

  [ Simon Quigley ]
  * Following the lead of the GTK frontend, remove the encrypted home
    directory option from the Qt installer since ecryptfs no longer has
    support from the Ubuntu Security Team. This removes the frontend but keeps
    the codebase for the option so it can be added back later using another
    technology (LP: #1761396).

  [ Adam Conrad ]
  * Automatic update of included source packages: localechooser
    2.71ubuntu2.

  [ Jean-Baptiste Lallement ]
  * Do not start gnome-initial-setup for the OEM user (LP: #1765651)
