Hi Jack

Don't be shy - run the command.. ;)

At the first run it will download all .txz files from base,deps and extra

You should at least find out (and post) what WiFi chipset this model has built in. lspci (or lsusb if usb device) then check if there are any firmware errors sudo grep -i firmware /var/log/messages If you need a firmware file you may find it at https://www.intel.in/content/www/in/en/support/articles...
