For diagnostic purposes please provide the output that you receive for the commands

uname -a
lsb_release -crid
modinfo 8821ce
dkms status

And, by the way, the link https://medium.com/@kimiyukiyukawa/installing-rtl8821ce-network-controller-on-ubuntu-335d8ccb8a92 works for me. If it does not work for you, then this may be a fault of your e-mail system, because it breaks the link. Try again with the link that you see in https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+question/688707 comment #1
