Firstly i implemented
VERS=$(lsb_release -cs)

sudo apt get
sudo apt-get install openfoam211
it throws an error
Unable to locate package openfoam211
Do you know how to handle this error?

If you really need an openfoam version that old, and you are certain that the binaries are actually still available, you will very likely need to do a fair bit of work to fit it to a newer Ubuntu distribution. I don't think you will have very much fun.
If you have Ubuntu bionic, focal or groovy you can try these instructions (not exactly what you asked, but might help)

If you still need an old version, could see about trying to setup an old Ubuntu image in a docker container.
Compiling from source will not bring you much joy.
