    pppoeconf is for telephone modem. Ethernet is broadband. Which are you using. What type of modem or network card?

    The "device not managed" method frequently means the device is defined in /etc/network/interfaces. If so, you can comment out the definition, save, and restart/reboot. (If you need it back, you can un-comment the lines).
