Thermal Paper not sticking

Having a problem with some decorating at home. We just bought a house and want to paint in a room that has wallpaper. The paper was textured so we wanted to remove it before Painting. We have taken the paper down and found one wall we didn’t realise has polyester thermal paper under its wallpaper. We removed the wallpaper and some of the thermal paper came off with it. We tried to put a new sheet of thermal over the top and then lining over the top of that and now thermal and lining paper are coming of the wall and areas the paste did not dry at all.

any advice?

Also, the thermal paper I used said it needs a stable paper over the top, ie not one that shrinks like lining paper, but a paste the wall type
