I have a bash script that is run at startup on an Odroid running Ubuntu Mate. The script connects to the wifi and then calls a python script which makes a http request:

nmcli dev connect NETWORKNAME password PASSWD
python my_script.py

This script works when I call it after boot. However, when it is called during boot, the "Network is unreachable" error is thrown. I tried to use the ethernet connection but the result is the same. Also, adding a sleep 30 command before calling the python script doesn't work. How can I solve this problem?

  • Do other networking commands work, e.g. ping? At what point during boot is this script run? – wjandrea Jul 3 '18 at 1:44
