AppStream is more for app meta-data while apt-file basically searches a directory of ASCII text to find specific files inside packages. I'm not sure if you could use AppStream as an apt-file replacement.

I'm the maintainer of the firmware-ath9k-htc package in Debian which applies to this hardware. Unfortunately it is not installed by default in Debian or PureOS, but it should work after being installed and possibly rebooting/reinserting the device. The firmware is installed under a non-standard file name as you've noticed, but the package comes with a configuration file that should enable it to be recognized under that name.

I just tried to delete the partitions and let the installer create them. It still does not ask for a LUKS passphrase and crashes. I also tried manually setting up partitions, LUKS, LVM and various combinations before running the installer. I don't know how I got this to work before but it always crashes now. Seems that PureOS no longer likes me (it was a difficult relationship to begin with).

No, disabling the timers is completely the wrong approach. The service belonging to the timer unit has built-in logic to do only what it was configured to do + some cleanup work that we always want to have done.
All you need to do to disable upgrades is to disable them in GNOME Software as well as in software-sources-gtk which is available in GNOME Software's burger-menu as well.

It appears that one *cannot* shut off updates with GNOME Software despite the settings that would imply that this is possible. What needs to be address is apt-daily-upgrade.timer. systemctl status apt-daily-upgrade.timer says;

● apt-daily-upgrade.timer - Daily apt upgrade and clean activities
     Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/apt-daily-upgrade.timer; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)

    Trigger: Thu 2020-12-31 06:28:21 EST; 10h left
   Triggers: ● apt-daily-upgrade.service

This can be disabled which ought to turn off automatic updates. Stop the timer and disable this way;

sudo systemctl stop apt-daily-upgrade.timer
sudo systemctl disable apt-daily-upgrade.timer

luks cryptsetup- trying to change encrypt pw
I see the warning, about using GNOME Disks to change the pw. I went to the link https://tracker.pureos.net/T541, and checked for updates to the string. Seems that mladen posted an update back in June 2020 that this issue was resolved. "Debian bug report: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=928893 indicates that this has been fixed."
We are now headed in Jan 2021, can anyone confirm this to be true? I would prefer not to be the "ginny pig".
I tried the terminal route first and ran into some issues and did not work out as described above. My drives are set up differently, I have two drives in this machine and not listed as sda's.
Before I dove down that rabbit hole, I figured I would revisit using GNOME Disks, as it would be far easier, if its safe.
I don't have a virtual machine set up yet to test it out on.
Feedback please.
