E: The repository ' artful Release' does not have a Release file.
N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.
N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.

Ubuntu Linux: packaged installation for Ubuntu 14.04, 16.04 and 17.04;
artful is 17.10. Compile OpenFOAM from sources, wait for packages for 17.10, downgrade to supported Ubuntu version.

Quick note: Deb packages for OpenFOAM 5 have been released on the 30th of October 2017:

It's not identified as "OpenFOAM 5.1", but it sort-of is OpenFOAM 5.1.
