Good afternoon all I am having an issue with networking on ubuntu 16.04 server.

I cannot update my server, wget or curl anything but everything else seems to be working such as ping, nslookup etc. apt-get gets stuck at 0% and the rest just hang.

apt-get update

0% [Connecting to us.archive.ubuntu.com (]

curl response

curl -v google.com
* Rebuilt URL to: google.com/
*   Trying
*   Trying 2607:f8b0:4000:812::200e...
* Immediate connect fail for 2607:f8b0:4000:812::200e: Cannot assign requested address
*   Trying 2607:f8b0:4000:812::200e...

wget response

wget google.com
--2018-05-02 15:37:19--  http://google.com/
Resolving google.com (google.com)..., 2607:f8b0:4000:812::200e
Connecting to google.com (google.com)||:80...

things I have done.

Checked for firewall settings, turned off UFW Forced ubuntu to always try ipv4 first used nslookup, dig, and ping which all work fine restarted network-manager

Any idea where else to go from here?

dig output

    dig www.google.com

  • It looks like something is blocking port 80 outbound. Are you sure there is no other firewall involved? – Sebastian Stark May 2 '18 at 18:03
  • Thanks for taking the time to respond @SebastianStark! I have checked if iptables is running as well as ufw, both are turned off at this time. Could there be a malconfigured network file causing this? – hj87 May 2 '18 at 19:53
  • I mean some other firewall in your network, on the gateway router perhaps. – Sebastian Stark May 3 '18 at 6:13
