There is a Release file for bionic. It is in this directory:

Are you sure you installed added the public key correctly with?:
sudo sh -c "wget -O - | apt-key add -"

You can check with:
apt-key list

Output should include:
uid [ unknown] OpenFOAM Foundation...

I have just tested a clean Ubuntu 18.04 (bionic) installation and ran the following with no errors:

sudo sh -c "wget -O - | apt-key add -"
sudo add-apt-repository
sudo apt-get update

Another option: is your networking down?
