Sorry, but you didn't :-)

The line in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/van-belle.list should be:

deb http://apt.van-belle.nl/debian focal-samba414 main contrib non-free

And the apt command should be:

apt install samba

If, after you get Samba from Louis's repo installed, you still have the
problem, can you post your smb.conf, the best way is to post the output
of 'testparm -s'. It is unlikely that anything in smb.conf is causing
your problem, but who knows without seeing it.
