resolvectl is no longer part of the bionic systemd package:

bionic search for resolvectl

cosmic search for resolvectl

I'm curious why it was removed and what we should be using as an alternative?


resolvectl was never part of the systemd package in Bionic. Per the systemd changelog, systemd-resolve was renamed to resolvectl in systemd 239, but Bionic has systemd 237. Thus in Bionic it is systemd-resolve.

  • I was confused about the release names. cosmic is actually after bionic... [sigh] – ericx Jun 7 '19 at 16:04
