I'm not sure I would trust that blog post. It is from 4 years ago and
things have changed since then.

>From memory, to install a new font under ubuntu (actually, I find this
works on most GNU Linux systems), I just do

1. Copy the font files into a directory under ~/.local/share/fonts (you
can call the directory whatever you like, I would possibly use something
like noto-colour).

2. Run fc-cache -v

and that  is it. However, before doing any of that, I would also verify
your Ubuntu doesn't already have a package for the Noto fonts. If your
running a supported version of Ubuntu, I suspect it will. Of course, you
will also need to undo the changes you made from that blog post - in
particular, undo chagnes made to the font config file. 

Also, make sure you have removed any of the previous emacs config stuff
people use to use to enable emoji support. I find that provided you have
the appropriate fonts installed, you don't need anything in your init.el
file to enable emoji support with recent versions of emacs.
