Unable to install Wireguard on Ubuntu focal

I am trying to install wireguard on Ubuntu focal 20.04. I have not made any modifications to sources.list, however sudo apt install wireguard

The installation of kernel module, specifically, fails with the following error

Loading new wireguard-1.0.20201112 DKMS files...

Hello, aviartz
My workaround TIPS share to you.

  • sudo apt-get install -y libssl-dev build-essential iptables


  • cd /usr/src/linux-headers-$(uname -r)
  • make scripts


  • sudo apt install wireguard

I try it in the newest ubuntu image successfully. Can you have a try?
