No TOTP Two-Factor Apps for NextCloud?

I've installed the latest NextCloud for Linode's Marketplace. I've signed into it via my browser and am looking in the Apps section for Two-Factor Authentication apps (TOTP) to go along with the "Enforce Two Factor Authentication" option under Settings > Administration > Security (which I found out will lock everyone out of the system if no 2FA app is separately installed). The only apps I can find are:

Two Factor Yubikey
Two-Factor Admin Support
Two-Factor Authentication via NextCloud Notification

None are what I want and the first two are "untested" but look like they're actually obsolete. But, if I go to:

I find "Two-Factor TOTP Provider" which is what I want and will work with the current NextCloud version.

Unfortunately, I can't figure out how to install what's in that app store into my Linode instance. Anyone know how to do that or why those NextCloud apps don't actually show up in NextCloud?

I haven't tried enabling TOTP on Nextcloud, but I did find an online guide that shows you how to do it:

How to enable 2FA on a per-user basis in Nextcloud

The article is less than a year old, so the information should be current.

Is that what you were looking for? Let us know if it works for you!
