I can't get emcas to open URLs from org mode - I've set both the BROWSER environment variable and the default system browser through "update-alternatives --install" (I'm on ubuntu), but I still get that same message :/

any ideas?

    The message is not from Org mode, it is from browse-url-default-browser: what browser are you trying to use and what is its path? Chances are that emacs does not know where to find it. Try evaluating this form in emacs: (executable-find "<browser-name>") where you should replace <browser-name> with the name of your preferred browser, e.g (executable-find "firefox") - just type C-x C-e after the closing paren. – NickD May 11 '20 at 20:15
