I noticed that at the list all communities page I see many communities from lemmy.ml, but not all of them.

The two I happened to notice were “covid” and “crypto”. I’m new to Lemmy and don’t know what would cause this. I found this earlier question but the answer implies at least there’s a way for a lemmy.ca user to subscribe to the community in question, and I can’t figure out how to do even that.

I tried going directly to https://lemmy.ca/c/coronavirus@lemmy.ml but I’m taken to a page that says “Couldn’t find community.”.

Huh, this is an area that the documentation seems to be pretty lacking in. When a community isn’t federated, you can get the instance to begin pulling in a community by doing a search for “!community@instance”. So, I think you were close, but you were only asking for a community that didn’t exist here yet.

I searched for !coronavirus@lemmy.ml and it’s subscribable now.

Feel free to play around with that.

Thank you for the incantation! I’m able to subscribe to things now.

Same here… also, the Lemmur app is broken for me (doesn’t load content)

Also, ensure you’re updated to lemmur 0.6.0 - I had to uninstall it in F-Droid (at 0.5.0) before 0.6.0 would show up. No idea what the deal was there.

All instances? Just lemmy.ca? I see you’re posting from lemmy.ml, so you’d have to describe your situation a little more. Maybe even in a new post relating to the issue, rather than a comment in a post relating to something else entirely.
