So, the driver was previously unsigned, then signed and included in the original Ubuntu kernel for 18.10, then subsequently unsigned during an update somewhere along the way?

That doesn't make sense to me - would have to try and find upstream to work out what has happened.
Larry Finger suggests that Realtek has rewritten the driver and his GitHub repo is only for older kernels that do not already ship the r8822be driver. 4.21 is quoted as when this new driver will drop.
