You should know most of the listed commands. Here are a few I consider
of minor importance:

telnet: Used only for socket troubleshooting.

nano: A relatively lousy editor. Vim, Emacs and VSCode are all better.

paste: Too complicated. Better done with AWK or Python.

The rest are very useful in numerous circumstances. And you forgot dd
and its more intelligent cousin, ddrescue.
