This might get better attention in the "testing" rubric. Anyway, please post the output of:

Code: Select all

sudo NetworkManager --version
systemctl status NetworkManager
Dmesg | grep <insert some suitable search term for your network hardware here>
It might be this issue: https://askubuntu.com/questions/1135412 ... hernet-now. The highest-voted answer seems to not have a solution but you could try the next 3 answers. Maybe check first if the NetworkManager version in your system is the same as in Ubuntu 19.10.

$ sudo NetworkManager --version
1.22.6
I can't tell which version they were using.

It appears that Dmesg is not installed on the affected PC

Also how do I uninstall / downgrade the last set of updates? I think they are these since I have two systems that are the same.

EDIT:
I blacklisted r8169 and installed

It still is not working, which of the upgrade files would cause this?

I'd guess kernel ... did you try booting with the previous one?

Also iptables has some bugs presently but I wouldn't imagine a malfunction to totally bork network access.

And dmesg cannot be not installed. But it needs sudo.

Could be a ufw/iptables issue. This thread on debian-user mentions failing network interface in the second posting.

In your post at the top you had an upercase D in dmesg, it's funny in networkmanager I did it in lowercase and it didn't work I had to upercase the first letters N, M, I should have thought about dmesg being the same.

$ sudo dmesg | grep Realtek
[ 2.621679] r8168 Copyright (C) 2019 Realtek NIC software team <nicfae@realtek.com>

I autoremove on a regular basis so I only have one kernel

Do you think that if I put in a different NIC card than Realtek that the system will connect?

Thanks

EDIT:
On a side note the internet works with a live CD.

I had the same problem, and found the solution in the link grizzlelr supplied. https://lists.debian.org/debian-user/20 ... 00403.html. Specifically in the the last response.

So I removed ufw. Then I purged iptables following this https://serverfault.com/questions/20063 ... bles-rules. After a restart I was able to connect to the internet.
I installed firewalld, rebooted, and was able to update the machine.

Deleting ufw enabled this machine to get to the net, so should I still purge iptables and which post of that link should I follow?

Thanks

I just followed exactly the things the guy in the first link posted. He purged the iptables so I did also. Iptables and firewalls are 2 of the many things that I still have to learn.
I wonder if having populated tables might inteerfere with installing firewalld?
If you are adventurous you could keep the iptables and see what happens.

Thanks,

I'll keep it as is until something doesn't work.

As I always say "don't fix it if it's not broken"

iptables will get reinstalled when you installed firewalld so there's no need to remove it. I think that person removed it as a precautionary steps since he doesn't really know which package was causing the issue

I had this same problem today. I removed ufw and was immediately able to connect to my network. I installed firewalld, restarted my system and it seems to be working fine.

Now I need to explore firewalld...
