E: Unable to locate package mongodb-org

After adding the repo did the apt-get update complete successfully ?

It should look similar to the below, specifically the lines with repo.mongodb.org

Double check the list file was created sucessfully:
cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mongodb-org-4.4.list

Output should look like:
deb [ arch=amd64,arm64 ] https://repo.mongodb.org/apt/ubuntu bionic/mongodb-org/4.4 multiverse
