Unhappy Failed to start nfs.service: Unit nfs.service not found.

I have been having this error and none of the solutions I see online have been helpfu. I can't move past here in my learning. Any suggestions?

Because there's no service with such a name on Ubuntu. Try
systemctl list-unit-files -t service
and see for yourself.
$ for p in kernel-server ganesha common; do apt-file list nfs-$p|grep service$;done
