Wireguard kernel module installation

Hi everyone,

I’m trying to install the kernel modules for Wireguard but when i run :

$ sudo apt install wireguard 

all I’m getting in response is:
Reading package lists… Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information… Done
E: Unable to locate package wireguard

does anyone else have experience attempting the same thing?

nothing helpful here

For wireguard to work you need the kernel from buster-backports.
So activate buster-backports software sources via the software sources tool. Refresh the package list and try installing a newer kernel (like 5.8 linux-image-5.8.0-0.bpo.2-amd64) and the wireguard package.
