wifi ideapad330s stop working

Asked by Deniz on 2019-10-03

I installed ubuntu 18.04.3 on my Ideapad 330s Laptop.
After finishing the installation process my laptop didn't detect its wifi adapter. By using an external device to connect my computer to the internet I install from GitHub the file rtl8821ce. For a few months, all worked fine but suddenly my wifi stops working. I try to reinstall the same file from Github but the next error shows on the terminal by using "make all" command:

make ARCH=x86_64 CROSS_COMPILE= -C /lib/modules/5.0.0-29-generic/build M=/home/yaeldeniz/rtl8821ce modules
make[1]: Entering directory '/usr/src/linux-headers-5.0.0-29-generic'
/home/yaeldeniz/rtl8821ce/Makefile:2162: //hal/phydm/phydm.mk: No such file or directory
/home/yaeldeniz/rtl8821ce/Makefile:2171: //rtl8821c.mk: No such file or directory
make[2]: *** No rule to make target '//rtl8821c.mk'. Stop.
Makefile:1606: recipe for target '_module_/home/yaeldeniz/rtl8821ce' failed
make[1]: *** [_module_/home/yaeldeniz/rtl8821ce] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory '/usr/src/linux-headers-5.0.0-29-generic'
Makefile:2242: recipe for target 'modules' failed
make: *** [modules] Error 2

any help would be cool!

if it is useful to mention, my laptop has Ryzen 3
