Why haven't you mentioned Drupal 9? I will be adding this, but as of August 2021, this site you are reading is the only Drupal site of mine I've been able to upgrade to D9, so although you can check D9 compatibility status of all modules (use upgrade_status, it's superb) I can't speak from personal experience about any of them.

Node Page Disable (node_page_disable) 2020-11-05

d.o. page

"Essential"

Adds an checkbox labelled 'Retain /node as an active url?' to /admin/config/system/site-information

This lets you disable the /node page which would otherwise list all published content.

Note it doesn't let you individual disable /node/xxx access by content type - see restrict_node_page_view or rabbit_hole for that.

This is for D7 only - in D8 you go to /admin/structure/views and disable /node there.
