No, it's a clean, clean install, I haven't installed nginx not in another repository. I just took steps from the front yard - nothing else.

A stock install of NGINX using that link and the repositories for mainline on 20.04 clean doesn't return this issue.  Did you attempt to start the service first before that, or did you install nginx from the Ubuntu repositories and then tried to install the packages overtop those repository packages?

Next, I installed nginx (mainline) from the nginx repositories:
After typing sudo systemctl nginx status receives a message regarding the PID file:

Aug 27 19:09:30 reverse-proxy systemd[1]: nginx.service: Can't open PID file /run/ (yet?) after start: Operation not permitted

Is it normal?
