[SOLVED] need help to add mi user to sudoers.

Hello, I have some troubles trying to add my user to the sudoers group, every time that I try to do so, I receive the following message: "gpasswd: group 'wheel' does not exist in /etc/group". Additionally, could you please help me since the key to mute/unmute the microphone is not working on XFCE, do you know the command to add the shortcut?

Thank you.

Re: [SOLVED] need help to add mi user to sudoers.

I have already done so, and also edited the sudoers file, reboot and every time that I want to use the command, i receive the following message:

sudo apt update
[sudo] password for joachin:

joachin is not in the sudoers file.  This incident will be reported.

getent group sudo

Please also share the full content of /etc/sudoers and any files under /etc/sudoers.d/.
