    You will probably just need to disable Secure Boot in the BIOS/EFI.

    Off for the evening.

    Enjoy your new wireless!

    It will help much better if you use thread tools at the top to mark Solved.

    Glad it's working.

    I am having the same problem with the same system. I have followed all the steps and this is what comes up at the end:

    Code:
    kramer@kramer-HP-Laptop-14-dk0xxx:~$ sudo apt install git dkms build-essential
