Unable to install the rtl8188fu USB WiFi dongle drivers on my Jetson Nano 4GB

I have been trying to install the drivers for the USB WiFi dongle (0bda:f179) I just got.
I found this link: GitHub - corneal64/Realtek-USB-Wireless-Adapter-Drivers at ARM-driver but I was getting a couple of errors, which I couldnt figure out.

ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'apt_pkg'
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 4.9.337-tegra (aarch64)

The apt_pkg error was solved once I switched to python 3.6 but the bad return status still exists. Any solutions?

In README, it says

For Kernel 4.15.x ~ 5.9.x (ARM devices)

We support Jetson Nano with K4.9. So the device may not be enabled since it requires at least K4.15.

Is there any workaround for this?
