    Re: Ubuntu 12.04 Recent Update Breaks Network Services (FIXED)

    In my case, the network connectivity was functioning correctly, but I couldn't change any of the settings (network mgr interface wasn't working).

    I previously stated that I performed the steps suggested in this post which fixed the issue for me, however this fix was only temporary. I turned the system on this morning and now the networking isn't functioning again. However this time it's quite the opposite situation of what it was for me the first time. The network manager app is working, but my network connection is not.

    It seems as though the system decided to install the updates again... Hopefully disabling the automatic updates installation this time will keep it from happening again.

    Code:
    wget http://mirror.pnl.gov/ubuntu//pool/main/n/network-manager/network-manager_0.9.4.0-0ubuntu3_i386.deb
    wget http://mirror.pnl.gov/ubuntu//pool/main/n/network-manager/libnm-util2_0.9.4.0-0ubuntu3_i386.deb
    wget http://mirror.pnl.gov/ubuntu//pool/main/n/network-manager/libnm-glib-vpn1_0.9.4.0-0ubuntu3_i386.deb
    wget http://mirror.pnl.gov/ubuntu//pool/main/n/network-manager/libnm-glib4_0.9.4.0-0ubuntu3_i386.deb
    After that, I'm 99% sure installed them in this order without any dependency issues:

    libnm-glib-vpn
    libnm-glib4
    libnm-util2
    network-manager
    network-manager-dbg
    Couldn't even install fist libnm-glib-vpn from usb stick. Server said "this version is outdated" in details it said "need to delete 20 objects and update 10". Since no mention of deleting anything has been mentioned I was afraid to do that to all 20 of the objects manually. Still unconnected to the internet with my server and seems others would be having trouble with this update too. Any other suggestions?

    +1. Installing those packages in that order resolved my networking issues.

    (I did have to download the amd64 packages instead of the i386.)


    edit 8/22: i have also locked the packages in Synaptic Package Manager so that i don't get inadvertently update to the bad version again.

    while this works to get connected, it still seems as though all services that require a network connection fail to start.

    Thanks for pointing this out. I had the same problem, however a simpler solution worked for me.

    First I checked whether network manager is working at all. Just type:
    Code:
    nmcli -f all -p nm status
    Turns out, my NetworkManager was not running. This can be fixed easily by simply typing:
    Code:
    sudo NetworkManager
    Voila! Hellooo internet!!

    For starters after the upgrade when turning the computer on I got the message "Waiting for network configuration" and "waiting up to 60 more seconds for network configuration"
    I have exactly the same problem, however I still can connect from Ubuntu but after calling "pppoeconf" many times, it is kind of frustrating

    I'm new at Ubuntu and I tried your solution but I guess I'm doing something wrong, when ever I try to install one of those packages I get the message "ldconfig deferred processing now taking place", any help on this ???

    here is the output of trying to install one of the packages
    Code:
    (Reading database ... 244590 files and directories currently installed.)
    Preparing to replace libnm-util2 0.9.4.0-0ubuntu3 (using libnm-util2_0.9.4.0-0ubuntu3_i386.deb) ...
    Unpacking replacement libnm-util2 ...
    Setting up libnm-util2 (0.9.4.0-0ubuntu3) ...
    Processing triggers for libc-bin ...

    Hello again,

    As I said in my previous post, my NetworkManager wasn't running. So I could start it up everytime I logged in, but I still got the same messages while booting:

    "Waiting for 60 more seconds... "
    and
    "Booting without full network configuration."

    The following hack(?) worked for me:

    1. Edit /etc/network/interfaces file as a root.
    2. Make sure it contains only the following two lines:
    Code:
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback
    Now everything works well upon startup.

    I obtained this information from this blog post.

    Cheers!

    I am very new to all this, but when I updated to 12.04 I have this issue. The version I had was not 9 but 8 in the items below. It did not work, so I am still not connected. Any suggestions? I don't have the full 12.04 on a USB and the Dell Inspiron is using an intel chip set. Thanks.

    For starters after the upgrade when turning the computer on I got the message "Waiting for network configuration" and "waiting up to 60 more seconds for network configuration"

    After it finally booted i had no network access wireless or on the lan. When i tried opening the network tool i got the error "The system network services are not compatible with this version"

    FInally the fix that I came up with:

    There appears to be an issue with the latest update of network manager. If you open software center, go to history, search keyword "Network" you will probably see "network-manager (0.9.4.0-0ubuntu4, 0.9.4.0-0ubuntu4.1)"

    If you see this then you have the same problem as I did. The solution is to downgrade to version 3: Search in google "ubuntu network-manager package" and select the ubuntu.com link -> scroll down the page to "network-manager-dbg" select the precise (debug) ubuntu3 version.

    http://packages.ubuntu.com/precise/network-manager-dbg

    Download the 4 related packages for your system (amd64 or i386):

    network-manager (= 0.9.4.0-0ubuntu3)
    network management framework (daemon and userspace tools)
    or libnm-util2 (= 0.9.4.0-0ubuntu3)
    network management framework (shared library)
    or libnm-glib4 (= 0.9.4.0-0ubuntu3)
    network management framework (GLib shared library)
    or libnm-glib-vpn1 (= 0.9.4.0-0ubuntu3)
    network management framework (GLib VPN shared library)

    install each of them using the command "sudo dpkg -i FILENAME"

    restart your computer and that should fix your problem! I hope this helps some and for those of you in the know can you please report this most recent update as broken? Thanks and good luck!

    @Mcgregrose: I suggest you start a new thread with a descriptive title rather than attempting to get help twenty posts deep on someone elses.

    You will get more help that way. It gets confusing for helpers and the OP when threads get hijacked. Thanks.
