I have not proceeded past loading your files as it is complaining about Clearsigned file invalid, etc...:

N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.
N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.

Also, since I'm stopped for now... you had me create a resolv.conf file here: /etc/systemd/resolv.conf
Yet Ubuntu has it here: /etc/resolv.conf  AND.... that is a "read only" file as it is dynamically updated as Ubuntu uses Netplan...  I have not uninstalled resolvd as I did before under other guidance.

I created the file you directed in the How-to, but I don't think it is doing anything.  Never the less the is NO problem resolving to whatever valid DNS name used in nslookup.

I did not want to proceed until you let me know if there is something wrong with how I am retrieving your packages.
