I am trying to get the drivers for this working on my mom’s computer, I have followed every tutorial that I have found and nothing has worked properly. Can someone please help me out? I am using Ubuntu version 20.04. I was recommended to try this Common method for installing Linksys ac1200 usb wireless router ineffective
I get this But the /remove-driver.sh commands and the many restarts has no results, i get an infinite loop of it telling me to restart

An error occurred. dkms build error = 10 Please report this error. You will need to run the following before reattempting installation. $ sudo ./remove-driver.sh
I regret to learn that the recommended git repository has very recently been superceded. Here is the new method:
git clone https://github.com/morrownr/88x2bu-20210702.git cd 88x2bu-20210702 sudo ./install-driver.sh
NOTE: Since you refer in your previous question to another attempted driver installation, I assume that the prerequisites git, dkms, build-essential and linux-headers are already installed.
