    `iwlist eno1 scan` does not yield any scan results.
    eno1 is ethernet. Your wireless is likely wlp10s0f0 or similar.

    Usually ethernet begins with the letter "e", but this time even wireless interface has it,

    Code:
    $ iwconfig
    enxbe85d1a50781  no wireless extensions.
    
    lo        no wireless extensions.
    
    enp8s0    no wireless extensions.

    Maybe "pin 20" is the solution

    Thanks a lot guys, my WiFi is finally working. After taping pin 20, wifi is no longer hard blocked. @jeremy31 thank you for that video, I was really confused how the pins were numbered. And thanks to everyone for helping me out. I sure learned a lot while fixing my WiFi.
