Ubuntu Upgrade *BUG*

Apparently when you upgrade Ubuntu from LTS to 16.10 [using do-release-upgrade], the network system stops working, in my case it was down to a specific file not being created at upgrade.

If you upgrade ubuntu from LTS to 16.10 and your ethernet stops working then make sure this file exists on your system, I bet it won’t

/etc/NetworkManager/conf.d/10-globally-managed-devices.conf

If it doesn’t then create it using this method and then reboot

touch /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d/10-globally-managed-devices.conf

It’s a BUG marked as won’t fix 😦
