CPUpower: can't set the governor my dell amd a10

CPUpower is not working on my amd a10 dell laptop. It’s an older laptop from 2016. I was using it with Manjaro and CPUpower was working. Now, my wife will be using it. She need something more stable.

How do I set the governor to performance?

> sudo cpupower -c all frequency-set -g performance
[sudo] password for root: 
Setting cpu: 0
Error setting new values. Common errors:
- Do you have proper administration rights? (super-user?)
- Is the governor you requested available and modprobed?
- Trying to set an invalid policy?
- Trying to set a specific frequency, but userspace governor is not available,
   for example because of hardware which cannot be set to a specific frequency
   or because the userspace governor isn't loaded?
