OK let's do this one step at a time. Open a terminal and enter this command then post the results

Code: Select all

wget https://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v5.8.14/amd64/linux-headers-5.8.14-050814-generic_5.8.14-050814.202010070730_amd64.deb

Code: Select all

berrymaffin@berrymaffin-Lenovo-IdeaPad-Slim-1-14AST-05:~$ wget https://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v5.8.14/amd64/linux-headers-5.8.14-050814-generic_5.8.14-050814.202010070730_amd64.deb

berrymaffin@berrymaffin-Lenovo-IdeaPad-Slim-1-14AST-05:~$  
Why does the time listed in the error message show 10:34:12?

Either the time on your computer and network are set incorrectly, or you're somewhere in Samoa... :?

Not having proper time settings can interfere with secure connections like https and banking sites and such....
