    Are you using ethernet or USB tether to a cell phone?

    Give this site a try:

    https://github.com/morrownr/88x2bu

    The documentation is better.

    I did not know I could tether my phone for wifi. I have now done that.
    I went to update and this is what I got
    Code:
    sudo apt update
    Reading package lists... Done
    E: Could not get lock /var/lib/apt/lists/lock. It is held by process 2185 (apt-get)
    N: Be aware that removing the lock file is not a solution and may break your system.
    E: Unable to lock directory /var/lib/apt/lists/

    sudo modprobe 88x2bu
    Reboot
    I got as far as the 6th line of code

    SOLVED!

    Thank you all for your input and patients! After connecting tether to my phone I went to the provided github page and followed the steps.

    I am looking forward to figure this system out!

    Couple quick additional questions!
    But posting all this code did I compromise any of my security?
    and for all the code I entered incorrectly will that cause problems for me?

    Thanks again I appreciate your time!

    Probably not. If everything is working, you are probably good to go.

    I maintain a repo that has a lot of information for Linux users that use USB WiFi adapters:
