  • It looks like your network connection was DOWN when sudo apt-get install openvpn was executed. Try again with the network UP. ip link show | egrep -q 'UP,LOWER_UP.* state UP' && echo UP || echo DOWN' – waltinator Mar 3 '18 at 0:04
  • It took a while to figure out, but Ubuntu seems to activate the wired connection and the wireless at the same time. That seems to have fixed it. I haven't checked in detail, but I think that's what's happening. Thanks for the help, everyone! – James Patterson Mar 3 '18 at 4:28
  • @JamesPatterson How did learning that wired and wireless connections are up at the same time solve the problem? – WinEunuuchs2Unix Mar 3 '18 at 16:34
