The RTL8822be chipset does not have a compatible driver when using kernel 5.0 and above. As a result, either your wifi adapter will be undetected or you will be unable to see any visible networks when scanning. I've tried many suggestions online but none of them worked for me.

Finally, I came across a solution which works.

sudo apt install git dkms
git clone https://github.com/aircrack-ng/rtl8812au.git
cd rtl8812au
sudo make dkms_install
