Soft bricked Moto e7 - ‘fastboot: command not found’

I have a Moto e7 at the SP Fastboot Flash Mode (Secure) screen.

Product/Variant: ginna XT2052-5 32GB PVT
Transfer Mode: USB connected

My OS is Linux and there’s no data I need to recover. I'm merely trying to boot and restoring to original settings would be fine.

I read a post indicating I need firmware, fastboot, and the attached script (unbrick.txt) in one directory. I’ve copied the firmware and platform-files into one directory. The directory listing (files.txt) is also attached.

I set the unbrick.sh permissions with ‘chmod +x.’ However, when executing ./unbrick.sh I receive ‘fastboot: command not found.’ Attempting to source the script produces the same error message.

Are the files and procedures correct? Why would fastboot not execute?
