Wifi not working (Realtek8822be)

After much searching to no avail, I have no idea what is wrong. At first, my wifi kept disconnecting, so I tried changing the drivers to the new AUR rtw88-dkms-git. I worked, but after a reboot, it no longer works. No wifi networks come up in the tray, and it is impossible to check the little wifi button. Ethernet/USB tethering still works.

Here is inxi -Fxxxza --no-host (just noticed the network driver switched from rtw-8822be to rtw-pci, idk when, but it wasn't working in either case)

Here is rfkill list. When I started this process, only phy0 was showing up. I really have no idea what hp-wifi is, it just showed up at some point.

0: phy0: Wireless LAN
        Soft blocked: no
        Hard blocked: no
1: hp-wifi: Wireless LAN
        Soft blocked: yes
        Hard blocked: yes
2: hci0: Bluetooth
        Soft blocked: no
        Hard blocked: no

Try this
sudo rfkill unblock all
sudo systemctl restart NetworkManager

I must have done that a million times, it doesn't do anything.
