Does this have anything to do with binary option robots? The whole thing sounds very dodgy and possibly illegal. A search for the error message, "operation not possible due to rfkill" turned up a bunch of hits involving binary options. I'd rip out your system and reinstall it from scratch being very careful about where you get your iso file.

i think it has to do with those stupid capacitive touch buttons to control wifi and certain blue shift keys on laptops... sometimes they get stuck on off even when toggled.

please post the output of these commands:
sudo rfkill list all
sudo rfkill unblock wifi
sudo rfkill list all
