Hi DMonty, & Anyone Else Interested in this,

After adding their repository, you must have their repository key before updating and installing their software.
For Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial (Linux Mint 18.x)
wget -nv https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:X0rg/xUbuntu_16.04/Release.key -O Release.key

sudo apt-key add – < Release.key
sudo apt update
sudo apt install cpu-x -y

For other Ubuntu versions see the link below, Linux deb files are in the "grab binaries directly" link.
Install package home:X0rg / cpu-x

Hope this helps …
