sudo systemctl enable dhclient@eth0.service
as returning
Code:
Command not found
and
Code:
Failed to execute operation: No such file or directory found?
And did you try
Code:
dhclient eth0 -vv
?

This is peculiar. Normally with a wired connection, on a fresh install, you should only need to execute
Code:
ip link set eth0 up
and
Code:
 dhclient eth0
which should get you connected
Please post the output of
Code:
ip a

I did find IPv4 when I right clicked on 'the wired connection 1'
under IPv4 addresses it was set to automatic (DHCP) and 'on'
other choices are manual link-local Only and Shared to other Computers

It appears your ethernet interface is
Code:
enol
rather than eth0
Please try
Code:
ip link set enol up
dhclient enol
ping -c 3 www.google.com

To avoid errors, you might copy/paste the device name from your own terminal output

well Dear Ezekiel I am getting pretty tired. I REALLY appreciate your help.

I had renewed the terminal window because it just started putting > along the edge and I can' tell if the enol was a mistake in typing or not. I did try that command with every combination of e, n o or 0 and 1 or l

Its funny they look different when typed from when the 1 or l are posted

I am going to leave now. I will work on a reinstall tomorrow or maybe chuck the laptop out the window onto the driveway... repeatedly.

thanks to both of you.

The next time you have a terminal do that, ctrl+c should get you out.
For the majority of this troubleshooting we've been applying our efforts to a device that doesn't exist on your system (eth0). This is one downside of transcribing terminal output.
In post #3, you say the output of
Code:
ifconfig
is
Quote:
I couldn't cut and paste because I can't get online but I copied your message and changed what was different. Gosh what big numbers you have Jeremy!

eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 5c:26:0a:88:d0:f9
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metrical

RX bytes:573(573.0 MiB) TX bytes:0 (0.0B)

lo Link encap:Local Loopback

UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:65536 Metric:1

TX packets:376 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:1
RX bytes:30240 (30.2 KB) TX bytes:30240 (30.2 KB)
as that is a very common device name, I didn't really question it.

But in post #49, you say the out output of
Code:
ip a
is
Quote:
l: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN group default glen 1
link/look back 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00

2. enol: <BROADCAST, MULTICAST, UP, LOWER_up> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state UP group default glen 1000
link ether 5c:26:0a:88:d0:f9 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
3.wlp2s0: <BROADCAST, MULTICAST> mtu 1500 qdisc noop state DOWN group default glen 1000

Ideally, you should have "eth0" OR "enol" in the output of both "ip a" and "ifconfig"; they shouldn't differ. Assuming "enol" is actually your network interface, rather than "eth0" (which is confirmed by the "device not found" errors you posted about earlier. We've targeting the wrong, nonexistent device.

If you were to once again
Code:
ip a
and with your mouse, highlight and right click to copy the device name that you earlier transcribed as "enol", then type
Code:
dhclient right click and paste device name here
I'm fairly confident you will be connected
