I am working on a beamer file that has a a lot of slides as an "appendix". Hence, when I introduce the command \setbeamertemplate{footline}[frame number] to display the page progress in the footer I get the outcome 1/200. I would like to know if there is a command that can fix the count to stop when I reach those "appendix slides". Meaning I would see 1/10 and then, just no count. There are a few questions on numbering that I have reviewed here and there, but I was not able to successfully adapt their code.

Another approach that I tried was found here: using the lastpage package with the command \pageref{LastPage}. However, it did not work.

The appendixnumberbeamer package does not count appendix slides, provided that the beginning of the appendix is declared with the \appendix command. See also Don't count backup slides.
