Unsupported OS: /etc/os-release ID 'zorin'

I picked up a very nice 28" monitor but the graphics look terrible, especially when gaming. I have read that the kernel includes AMDGPU drivers but when I tried to install that, it installed however when I type in the command "amdgpu-install" I get the unsupported OS error.

I did try "sudo add-apt-repository ppa:oibaf/graphics-drivers" and "sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade" After a wall of text nothing was updated with the second command. I also saw I could edit the gpu install script to add zorin but I do not know how to do this.

Why is this so hard to get good graphics?

The Oibaf team has dropped support for 20.04 or Z16. Apparently, they only provide drivers for a limited window... But that would be why that did not work.

What is your terminal output for

sudo lshw -C video

It is looking for a known name like "Ubuntu". The quick work around is to modify your /etc/os-release file to say "ubuntu" instead of Zorin, then change it back once install is completed.

I would add more to this error but I have ran into another problem, for now.
