Generally Debian-derivatives ship the kernel source they use as packages
named "linux-source-<major>.<minor>" (guessing you need
linux-source-5.4?).  They ship their configurations as packages
"linux-config-<major>.<minor>", but they also ship their configuration
with their kernels as /boot/config-<version>.

If you're trying to create a proper packaged kernel, the Linux kernel
Make target "bindeb-pkg" will create an appropriate .deb file.

If you wish to extract a Debian package, they're some tarballs and a
marker file wrapped in a ar archive.  You're likely interested in
control.tar.?z* and data.tar.?z*.  Older packages used gzip-format
(.tar.gz), newer packages use xz-format (.tar.xz).

If you want to extract current Ubuntu kernel source on a different
distribution (or even an unrelated flavor of Unix), likely you would
want `ar p linux-source-5.4.deb data.tar.xz | unxz -c | tar -xf -`.
