    E: The repository 'http://ppa.launchpad.net/wallch/wallch-daily/ubuntu bionic Release' does not have a Release file.
    N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.
    N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.

    Remove the http://ppa.launchpad.net/wallch/wallch-daily/ubuntu ppa from the system then run sudo apt update to see what happens; it should run without a problem, though that ppa has already been ignored and updating should not be a problem even when it's enabled.

    Note also that the blender ppa already seems to be enabled and working.

    Looks like that PPA hasn't been updated in five years.
