    Unfortunately the driver for the RTL8821ce is not included in Ubuntu's install you will have to install it from else where.
    If you can connect to the internet via Ethernet cable you can run these commands in a terminal (one at a time) and install the needed driver.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall git dkms build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r)
    git clone https://github.com/tomaspinho/rtl8821ce
    cd rtl8821ce
    chmod +x dkms-install.sh
    chmod +x dkms-remove.sh
    sudo ./dkms-install.sh
    then reboot and your wifi should be working.
    good luck
