Trouble installing wireless drivers

by Matthew   Last Updated May 21, 2018 03:02 AM

I have this wifi card that wasn't working with Ubuntu due to driver issues. I figured that this Intel Wireless 8260 (4.1) driver would be the one to solve my problem but when I downloaded and tried to install it with dpkg I got the following error:

Preparing to unpack firmware-iwlwifi_20161130-3_all.deb ...
Unpacking firmware-iwlwifi (20161130-3) ...
dpkg: error processing archive firmware-iwlwifi_20161130-3_all.deb (--install):
trying to overwrite '/lib/firmware/intel/ibt-11-5.ddc', which is also in package linux-firmware 1.157
dpkg-deb: error: subprocess paste was killed by signal (Broken pipe)

Attempts to install it with the GUI also didn't do anything. What am I missing/should I try to reolve the issue?
