    Installing VPN installs wifi drivers instead

    I recently upgraded to the most recent version of Pop!_OS. Somehow downloading the update got rid of my install of NordVPN. I tried to reinstall it but all the files, except the .config file, were gone. Did a fresh download of the installer, but whenever I try to set it up my system tries to update my wifi adapter drivers, crashes, and then doesn't get to the VPN. Any ideas?

    Terminal below; the rtl8812au-dkms package are my wifi adapter drivers.

    Can you show this please:
    apt policy rtl8812*
    apt policy rtl8812au-dkms
    With realization of one's own potential and self-confidence in one's ability, one can build a better world.
