I have transferred an Ubuntu 18.04 virtual machine (VMware) from one PC to another. Since transferring I am getting intermittent SSL within the VM which causes web browsing (on some sites, usually just login pages) to time out (secure connection failed) after hanging for about 2 minutes.

In addition it is also ruining my SSH, sometimes I can use a different crypto for SSH and it will work, otherwise i have to restart the VM. The problem comes and goes frequently enough that it's unusable. I have tried creating new 18.04 VMs on this computer and the same thing happens, yet not when i create on my old PC...

I am looking for ideas on how to troubleshoot this issue.

Note: I use Mullvad VPN client so not sure if it is the problem, have not tried without yet.
