No setup.bash after Noetic install

I am on Ubuntu 20.04 and have installed Noetic according to the instructions here and choosing the ros-noetic-desktop-fullinstall:

I try to source the /opt/ros/noetic/setup.bash file, but it does not exist:

$ ls /opt/ros/noetic/
bin  etc  include  lib  share

What could cause this?

No? I'm not sure what you're asking. The instructions told me to source that setup.bash file but it isn't there.

How much of Noetic is installed? Up to desktop-full, desktop, ros-base?

I installed desktop full; also updated the question to add that info.

Have you ran catkin_make yet?

cd ~/catkin_ws
echo "source ~/catkin_ws/devel/setup.bash" >> ~/.bashrc
source ~/.bashrc

That wouldn't solve the problem. Besides, I can't do it anyway: catkin_make isn't available until the setup file is sourced. But I don't have the setup file.
