    Angry No network connectivity in Lubuntu 18.10 release?

    Just booted up Lubuntu 18.10 64-bit and there seems to be a problem with the network manager.
    Here is a picture with the image booted in a VMware Workstation VM:

    As you can see the network interface is down.
    The emulated interface is the well known e1000.
    This also happened on a physical host, so is unlikely a driver problem. The physical host had several network adapters and all were down.
    I managed to manually bring an interface up on the physical host and it was functional for the respective session, but not in the first try.
    Was NM tested before release?

    Thread moved to the "Virtualisation" forum.

    This is not a virtualization problem. The problem is present on all platforms.
    I described how the issue appears in VMware just because it can easily be reproduced by anyone.

    Networking in 18.10 works fine for me in a KVM VM, so I don't think it is an indication that something wasn't tested. Not at home, but I'll try to remember to look at later.

    We'll let howefield decide if he wants to move the thread back.

    I don't know if it was clear, but I was referring to Lubuntu lxqt distro.

    I can spin up a Lubuntu VM and look at that.

    I'm typing this from a Lubuntu 18.10 VM through a private NIC connection (I have 14 ports on this machine, so I assign one privately to each VM).

    Are you running in bridged mode when you run this from a VM? What can you tell us about your physical hardware when you are running on bare metal?

    Baremetal:
    [root@localhost:~] lspci
    ...
    0000:00:1f.6 Network controller: Intel Corporation Ethernet Connection (2) I219-V [vmnic0]
    0000:04:00.0 Network controller: Qualcomm Atheros QCA6174 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter
    0000:05:00.0 Network controller: Wilocity Ltd. Wil6200 802.11ad Wireless Network Adapter
    and a TP-Link UE300.
    I remember that all had the correct driver loaded, but all interfaces were down.

    VM Workstation:
    Just a regular E1000 NIC:
    ethernet0.connectionType = "nat"
    ethernet0.addressType = "generated"
    ethernet0.virtualDev = "e1000"

    OK. Let's move this back to Networking & Wireless and concentrate first on the bare metal issue.

    For those interested in helping, let's please keep this to a standard install for now and we can deal with the virtualization issues in a different thread.

    Looks like they fixed it. I downloaded the iso again, and network is working.
    http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/lubuntu/re...ktop-amd64.iso now has 601a688695af640e3e75155651167697571eeb8b hash.
    The one that I downloaded 3 days ago had 2ff38a8c19579d9d557fbdb68c8981c5a576e772 hash.
