The version of HandBrake packaged by Ubuntu is not under our control, and they have made changes such as removing other formats. Please install the official PPA or Flatpak, see handbrake.fr.

But aside from that, the current HandBrake release only supports 2 formats. Matroska (aka mkv) and MPEG-4 (aka mp4). You want MPEG-4.
