Qgoo AC1200 WifiAdapter not recognized, Just installed

Hi. I bought a Qgoo 1200 usb wifi adapter and it was delivered today. However, the computer does not see it (see screenshot for terminal commands). I have another usb adapter that I am using to connect here, but the speed is terrible--it should be up to 50Mbps or 30 at least, but it registers at 1Mbps. I have an install.sh file, but after running in the terminal, I am asked for the root make password, I enter my sudo, but that does not complete the install process. Should I remove the usb I am using now in the future when trying to get the Qgoo installed--if I can leave them both in when installing the Qgoo, how do I choose which usb is used? I tried rebooting with just the Qgoo in. Thanks.

It's a USB adapter, lsusb will show it.
I see a Realtek 1200M adapter in the first try. device info 0bda:b812

The command should be sudo iw dev wlan0 scan

You have to find the Realtek driver RTL8812BU and compile it.

Hi-- thanks for helping. My machine is throwing up errors when I am copying-and-pasting commands from askubuntu--the building module part.

I am directed to a log for more info--I have attached the section with the errors--let me know if you want the full log. I don't want to provide mountains of code to force you to go looking for a needle in the info.

Here is what the terminal says at the step with an error:
