I have downloaded compat-wireless-3.6.8 and backports-5.8-1, since from what I have learned from the internet, I don't have right drivers. I wasn't able to install them. Results:

Contents of config.log, thought i have no idea if this is even relevant.

This file contains any messages produced by compilers while
running configure, to aid debugging if configure makes a mistake.

It was created by configure, which was

I have no idea what to do next. My end goal is to have working internet connection, preferable wireless. I believe i will be able to install with apt-get then. I also should have Ethernet, but I was only able to find any mention of it in bios as device.

Please, help.

  • I bet you're on a laptop/notebook. Look for the firmware that is probably missing. Run sudo journalctl -b -p err and look for it. This works on Debian, not sure about Mint, though.

Did you check this ? There are some paths to explore.

https://askubuntu.com/questions/459654/drivers-for-broadcom-bcm43142-on-ubuntu-14-04-trusty-tahr

I suggest to perform searches with
