I am trying to make L2TP/IPsec VPN available in GUI on network settings on ubuntu 18.04 but with no luck. I tried the following:

$ sudo apt-get install network-manager-l2tp  
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
network-manager-l2tp is already the newest version (1.2.8-2build1).
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 99 not upgraded.

and

$ sudo apt-get install network-manager-l2tp-gnome
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  network-manager-l2tp-gnome
0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 99 not upgraded.

but with no luck. What am I missing on Ubuntu 18.04?

So it appears I configured everything correctly as it started working after I logged out of the user and logged back in.
