works for me.

  INSTALL sound/usb/snd-usb-audio.ko - due to target is PHONY
  INSTALL sound/usb/snd-usbmidi-lib.ko - due to target is PHONY
  DEPMOD  4.18.4-letux+ - due to target is PHONY
Warning: 'make modules_install' requires /sbin/depmod. Please install it.
This is probably in the kmod package.

and returns success status.

BR and thanks,
Nikolaus Schaller
