Indeed - as outlined by the linked article chromium-browser on Mint 20 is a dummy package. The article includes a link which outlined why. You need to read the whole article, digest the content, make a decision about which 3rd party route you want to go to install chromium and then follow the relevant instructions.

I Install It with these command.
apt remove --purge chromium-browser
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:saiarcot895/chromium-beta
apt update
apt install chromium-brows
Can I rely on this third party software?

Brave browser is based off chromium, I installed it without an issue using the instructions on the Brave website, might be another option.

Vivaldi is also a chrome (or chromium?) based browser and available in the software centre

https://snapcraft.io/docs/installing-snap-on-linux-mint
sudo snap install chromium

I think this is the best solution
