Problems with NETPLAN

If you experience any problems with NETPLAN after any update. It is because netplan try's to disable your old settings. To solve this issue try check or install the following tools

apt install ifupdown apt install netplan apt install net-tools

These tools are essential before you change anything on your system.

This implies that you have the possibility to go back to a configuration in which you stil have a network connection, if not you have to find a way to get ifup running.

So, solving this problem is to edit your configuration file /etc/netwrok/interfaces.

Enter the following for DHCP:

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

Enter this if you would like to have a static adres:

# The primary network interface
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
address 192.168.0.X

After editing the file restart your network with /etc/init.d/networking restart

if you don't see you network you probably haf to ifup eth0 to bring up your network again.

That's all,
