No I'm afraid this is not going to work, because of incompatible library dependencies. For example, if your Ubuntu is 18.04 or later, the server is expecting openssl 1.1.1 but Centos7 has openssl 1.0.2. There may also be dependencies on some OS features which are different between Ubuntu and Centos.

If you want to run the same binaries across different Linux variants, your best choice is probably to use the "generic linux" tarballs. From

You can choose "Linux - Generic" and select the "Linux - Generic (glibc 2.17)" Minimal Install. This should work fine on Centos7 and I think it also should work on Ubuntu unless you have a very old Ubuntu. If this doesn't work, try the "Linux - Generic (glibc 2.12)". Make sure to pick the 64-bit unless you're running a 32-bit system.
