When I try to update with
sudo apt-get update, I get the following:
E: The method driver /usr/lib/apt/methods/https could not be found. N: Is the package apt-transport-https installed?
How do I fix this?

The error message suggests to install the package
apt-transport-https, but I'm afraid that it doesn't help much. If showing the package, you get:
rpi ~$ apt show apt-transport-https Package: apt-transport-https Version: 220.127.116.11 Priority: optional Section: admin Source: apt Maintainer: APT Development Team <email@example.com> Installed-Size: 156 kB Depends: apt (>= 1.5~alpha4) Download-Size: 149 kB APT-Sources: http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian buster/main armhf Packages Description: transitional package for https support This is a dummy transitional package - https support has been moved into the apt package in 1.5. It can be safely removed.
Https support is now in the apt package so you can try to use apt instead of apt-get:
rpi ~$ sudo apt update
deb http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian/ buster main contrib non-free rpifor buster and see if that fixes it
sudo apt install apt-transport-https
