NanoPi R1S-H3 Wireless access point/hotspot

I am trying to setup a wireless hotspot/access point on the NanoPi R1S-H3 by following the post here ... 9804#89804

I am able to get hostapd to start and I can see the SSID (from the NanoPi) on my phone but can't connect to it.

When trying to connect to I get an error saying "WPA: received EAPOL-Key msg 2/4 in invalid state (10) - dropped"

Another thing I noticed is that the command:

sudo iw list | grep -A4 "valid interface combinations:"

Doesn't return anything.

Is the wireless interface on the NanoPi R1S-H3 not capable of interface combinations (e.g. to act as both a client and access point)?

Or could this be a drivers issue?

Note: I am running FriendlyCore/Ubuntu (nanopi-r1s-h3_sd_friendlycore-focal_4.14_armhf_20210618), because it has better CUPs and Gutenprint support. I have not been able to setup printing in FriendlyWRT (OpenWRT), so it is preferred to setup the wireless hotspot in Ubuntu.
