I have tried and reinstalled POP OS, both Nvidia and amd64 21.04 version and Ubuntu-mate 21.04 plus installed with appropriate settings:
 sudo apt install -y system76-driver system76-driver-nvidia vlc synaptic ffmpeg system76-driver gparted  apt-transport-https winff apache2 apache2-utils par2 perl smbclient gcc torbrowser-launcher rrdtool git make perl-doc libnss-winbind winbind libacl1-dev curl snap  openjdk-11-jdk debsums gdebi mousepad thunar virtualbox  clamav clamav-daemon webmin openvpn unzip sudo qbittorrent

and always have encountered a 10-second delay when entering terminal commands: like
sudo apt update (<enter> wait 10 secs) then password prompt appears

This is on a System76 Serval-WS laptop model: serw11
