G'day Chipist, and Welcome to Linux.org

https://nordvpn.com/download/linux/


I am assuming you already have Nord downloaded to your downloads folder ?

If in fact it is in your download folder, then your first move is as below.....

sudo apt-get install /home/nordvpn/Downloads/nordvpn-release_1.0.0_all.deb
hit enter
enter password
wait for the install to finish.......then Update it...
sudo apt-get update

then...Install it
sudo apt-get install nordvpn







Settings

In order to access NordVPN client settings, type the nordvpn command in a terminal.

Here is the list of available commands:

nordvpn login - Logs you in.
nordvpn connect or nordvpn c - Connects you to the VPN. In order to connect to the specific servers, use nordvpn connect <country_code server_number> (eg. nordvpn connect uk715)
nordvpn disconnect or nordvpn d - Disconnects you from the VPN.

nordvpn set or nordvpn s - Sets a configuration option. Possible options:
nordvpn set cybersec on or off - enable or disable the CyberSec feature

I am not sure what is going wrong for you....could be a typo

Go to https://support.nordvpn.com/

Type in Linux Install

and copy and paste the commands

it only takes a missing . to screw the whole thing up
