Since one of the updates was a new kernel, I rebooted the sysem (probably unnecessary , as the new kernel was already running).
When the system came back up, it would no longer connect to my local lan through the (one & only) wired NIC.
I had other priorities at the time, so I just shut the system down for a couple of days.
In the interim, my file server (a Kubuntu 18.04.3LTS machine) exhibited the same behavior. So I booted both machines up with alternative OS' and confirmed that the issue was NOT hardware related. So I tried rebooting with the previous kernel, but no joy, still no network connection.
Network-manager had previously been configured to set the wired connection up automatically via DHCP, but it was no longer doing that.
I saw, with ifconfig that the connection (enp0s3) was up, but had no IP4 address or netmask. If I manually set a static address and netmask, Network-manager would notice and stop spinning it's wheel, and I could connect to other machines on my local lan.
So I issued:
Code: Select all
#ifdown enp3s0 && ifup enp3s0 && dhclient enp3s0
Network-manager detected the active connection, but I still couldn't get it to make a VPN connection over the wired connection.
So-- what's going on?
What else do you need to see?
I have a copy of /var/log/apt/history.og as well as the output of
Code: Select all
#journaalctl --no-pager | grep -A 5 -B 5 -n enp3s0 - > enp3s0.log
I'd really like to know how to solve this issue. I see that a new release based on Debian Buster is out, so I'll work on upgrading my system, but I want to solve this first.
