@blackpoll: The binary package installs faster since it's just placing precompiled files. The one building from source takes longer, but uses native tools and libraries to build so it's more optimized.

@yochananmarqos Thank you for helping to clarify the different package options. What would be the reason for using the .deb-based package vs. the one built from source? Is there an advantage/disadvantage to either one? Thanks

@blackpoll: Mullvad is having issues with Wireguard connections right now, check their blog or Twitter.

The mullvad-vpn / mullvad-vpn-beta packages build from source; while mullvad-vpn-bin / mullvad-vpn-beta-bin are packaged using prebuilt binaries. In this case, the Debian package (.deb).

Can't connect to any Wireguard servers so had to switch to OpenVPN and it works now. What is the difference between this bin version and the regular version?

Error during installation: MullvadVPN-2020.3_amd64.deb ... FAILED (unknown public key A26581F219C8314C)

EDIT: I had to import the key with systemctl restart tor.service gpg --recv-keys A26581F219C8314C

(Obviously you need to have tor installed firt)
