Linux Network Connectivity Problem; Dual Boot, Works on Windows, not Ubuntu


I have a dual boot laptop, Ubuntu 18.0.4, and Windows 10. The Windows side has no problem with Internet connectivity, but the Linux side does. Ubuntu shows the wired and wireless network connectivity as OK, but there is no Internet access.

I am posting here a pdf file of the screen prints. Sorry, I couldn't figure out any other way to do it. Here is the link to the screen prints:

Screen Prints of Network-Internet Connectivity Issue 2019-09-11.pdf

Let me know if I need to post anything else. Thanks.

internet is working, your dns resolver is not

can you provide output of

Code:
cat /etc/resolv.conf
text please the pdf is nice but the ping results could have been pasted here in a code box like this

[code]
paste here
[/code]

Firerat, thanks for your response. I have logged onto the Linux side and done as you requested. But the results are not as you might expect.

I did a little digging, and I have once again included some pdf screen prints. I think it tells the story better than I can. Take a look and see. The /etc/resolv,conf is not found.

I will have to post back here later. The filesize of the pdf was too large.

well

you typed /etc/resolv,conf with a comma , not a fullstop . ( period in US? )
if that was typed on the command line that is why it was not found.

you should be able to copy and paste the output from the command line

edit: I just realised, no internet so can not copy paste?
instead of using a pdf you could save output to a text file and copy paste that

ok, I'm going to try to pre-empt things

Network Manager should be handling the DNS setup

I'm going to try and guide you through adding 8.8.8.8 ( opendns )

Code:
sudo nmtui
#-> Edit Connection
#-> select your wifi
#-> IPv4 CONFIGURATION <Automatic> <Show>
#-> If not Automatic select that and pick auto
#-> select <show> 
#-> DNS servers ->  <add>
# enter 8.8.8.8
# [X] Ignore automatically obtained DNS parameters
# if it is marked X as above
# select the X and toggle with <spacebar>
# actually, may not need the 8.8.8.8 if ignore was checked
# optionally repeat with IPv6
# down at bottom select OK
reconnect the wifi, you should be able to resolve dns names
we then need to work out if we can add a better one from your router/ISP
although... many people choose to use 8.8.8.8

As a FYI, Ubuntu 18 uses systemd-resolved as a DNS resolver by default so /etc/resolv.conf should look something like

Code:
nameserver 127.0.0.53
options ...
...
Is your system configured for DHCP? Have you changed any network settings? Connecting to a VPN?

What is the output of the command
systemd-resolve --status

You can use the command line as posted or the NetworkManager applet might be easier to use.

Firerat and michaelk, I appreciate your responses, in spite of my busy schedule and not being able to follow up. I will take your suggestions and try them as soon as I complete this post.

OK. Since /etc/resolv.conf was not found, I changed directories to the /etc directory, and keyed in "ls -al". This is part of what Linux spit out:

Code:
drwxr-xr-x   2 root root    4096 Apr 27  2018 rcS.d
drwxr-xr-x   3 root root    4096 Apr 26  2018 resolvconf
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root      27 Sep 10 22:46 resolv.conf -> /run/resolvconf/resolv.conf
-rwxr-xr-x   1 root root     268 Jul 21  2017 rmt
So I decided to keep digging.

Code:
len@len-Satellite-E45t-A:/etc$ cd resolvconf/
len@len-Satellite-E45t-A:/etc/resolvconf$ ls -al
total 20
drwxr-xr-x   3 root root    4096 Apr 26  2018 .
drwxr-xr-x 139 root root   12288 Sep 10 22:46 ..
drwxr-xr-x   2 root root    4096 Feb  6  2019 update-libc.d
len@len-Satellite-E45t-A:/etc/resolvconf$ cd update-libc.d/
len@len-Satellite-E45t-A:/etc/resolvconf/update-libc.d$ ls -al
total 12
drwxr-xr-x   2 root root    4096 Feb  6  2019 .
drwxr-xr-x   3 root root    4096 Apr 26  2018 ..
-rwxr-xr-x   1 root root     249 Feb  2  2018 avahi-daemon
len@len-Satellite-E45t-A:/etc/resolvconf/update-libc.d$
Doesn't look like resolv.conf is working like you would expect.

So now I will try your suggestions, and I'll post back here later.

/etc/resolv.conf does exist
it is a link to /run/resolvconf/resolv.conf

but cat wouldn't care ... or maybe it would..
ok if the link was broken it would say "No such file or directory"

Code:
ls /run/resolvconf/
# note that is /run not /etc
we are looking for resolv.conf

I would double check
it is really easy to miss type it as resolve.conf
Code:
cat /etc/resolv.conf
tip: when using command line, you can use something called tab completion
<tab> is the tab key
Code:
cat /e<tab>res<tab>.<tab>
^^ that would be enough to get the whole command
handy for looking for things that you don't quite know the name of, a double tab give a list of possible completions

Firerat, to answer your previous question, I did indeed post "/etc/resolv,conf", but I really did type "/etc/resolv.conf" at the command line. I just didn't proofread the post.

And I did try your suggestion for using Network Manager. That's a pretty nifty little tool, thanks for informing me about it. However, that did not fix the problem. And I was very careful to not spell it "resolve", I used "resolv". I did know about using tab for command-completion. But thanks, it never hurts to get more knowledge.

michaelk, here is the output of "systemd-resolve --status":

I have done some of my own research on the Internet. One suggestion was to use the iptables command to check if the connection is getting blocked by a firewall. Here is the result:

Code:
len@len-Satellite-E45t-A:~$ sudo iptables -L
[sudo] password for len: 
Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination         

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination         

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination         
len@len-Satellite-E45t-A:~$
Here is a tracepath command, which supposedly helps show where the connection fails:

Code:
len@len-Satellite-E45t-A:~$ tracepath 8.8.8.8
 1?: [LOCALHOST]                      pmtu 1500

what is in /run/resolvconf/
that is where /etc/resolv.conf is pointing to

Firerat, the /run directory does not contain a file or even a directory named "resolvconf". Perhaps that is important! That link is pointing to a non-existent file.

yeap

when anything writes to /etc/resolv.conf it just disappears into a blackhole

ok, we can work around it.. until we figure out what is failing to create it

Code:
sudo mkdir /run/resolvconf
if you then reconnect with wifi it *should* populate the resolv.conf

this won't persist.
/run is a tmpfs it only exists in memory
once you reboot it will be gone

after installing ubuntu bionic in a lxc I get
Code:
ls -l /etc/resolv.conf 
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 39 Sep 11 07:43 /etc/resolv.conf -> ../run/systemd/resolve/stub-resolv.conf
note the date,
this would have been when the lxc image was created.

I deleted that file and rebooted ( the lxc )
it was not recreated.

after ln -s back to the stub
I installed resolvconf
Code:
apt install resolvconf
ls /etc/resolv.conf -l
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 29 Sep 12 05:54 /etc/resolv.conf -> ../run/resolvconf/resolv.conf
the contents were similar those in original /etc/resolv.conf
( "options edns0" line was removed ) see +bug/1817903


I then rebooted the lxc, and re listed
Code:
ls -l /etc/resolv.conf /run/resolvconf/
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root  29 Sep 12 05:54 /etc/resolv.conf -> ../run/resolvconf/resolv.conf

/run/resolvconf/:
total 4
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root   0 Sep 12 05:59 enable-updates
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root  60 Sep 12 05:59 interface
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 315 Sep 12 05:59 resolv.conf
The time stamp had not changed on /etc/resolv.conf
however, the time stamps in /run/resolvconf reflect the boot time

so, it would appear something has gone wrong with resolvconf
around Sep 10 22:46 , do you recall doing any installs/updates around that time?
the changelog for resolvconf shows no recent activity
last being
Code:
resolvconf (1.79ubuntu10.18.04.3) bionic; urgency=medium

  * d/resolvconf.resolvconf-pull-resolved.service
    Hack out the 'edns0' option that systemd-resolved has
    recently added to its stub-resolv.conf. (LP: #1817903)

 -- Dan Streetman <ddstreet@canonical.com>  Thu, 14 Mar 2019 17:35:23 -0400
options
  • reinstall resolvconf
    Code:
    sudo apt install resolvconf --reinstall
  • uninstall resolvconf and return to ubuntu bionic default
    Code:
    sudo apt purge resolvconf

Unless you recall a specific reason for having resolvconf I would go down the uninstall route.
It could be that resolvconf resolved the issue which +bug/1817903 refers to, in which case try the reinstall

if neither of those options work then I may have to track down what the ifupdown that is mentioned in bug/1817903 is/was doing

was this system upgraded to 18 or was it installed as 18?

Firerat, here's a report for you. Thanks for your help.

Yes, I did this:

Code:
sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces
and then I added these lines to the "interfaces" file:

Code:
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

auto eth1
iface eth1 inet dhcp
I also stopped, started, restarted the network services with these commands

Code:
sudo ifdown eth0 && sudo ifup eth0
I tried some other variants of "ifdown" and "ifup", can't remember now exactly. I was trying to get the network services to stop and restart.

I did the following, per your instructions:

Code:
len@len-Satellite-E45t-A:~$ sudo mkdir /run/resolvconf
[sudo] password for len: 
len@len-Satellite-E45t-A:~$ ls -l /etc/resolv.conf

was this before or after problems?

eth0 is 'the old way' of naming network devices

also you are using Network Manager, you don't need to manually setup network with that configuration

Code:
ip addr
will get you something like this ( but more lines )
Code:
2: enp9s0: <NO-CARRIER,BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP> mtu 1500 qdisc mq state DOWN group
3: wlp12s0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc mq state UP group
but they might be the old style

...

what does /etc/resolv.conf look liek now that resovconf has been removed?

is it now
/etc/resolv.conf -> ../run/systemd/resolve/stub-resolv.conf

what are the contents?
