I am slowly digging my way out of the same situation.

Here is the skill set I'd be shooting for:

* Web development using ASP.NET Core. Including HTML, Javascript, and CSS.
(Learn these BEFORE attempting heavy frameworks like Angular or React.)

* Docker and Kubernetes.

* Basic Cloud technologies such as storage, compute, lambdas, etc.

* Learn your way around Linux and open-source tooling. You'll interact with these in the modern world whether you want to or not.

* As others suggested, learn what employers in your market want, and develop at least basic familiarity with these.

Good luck (to all of us).
