I had installed Ubuntu 19.10 a couple of months ago in my VMware. Everything was working fine. But today I noticed that Ubuntu can't able to access the internet.

There is no issue with my internet. The network is working fine on my host machine. I have a couple of other virtual machines. The Internet is working fine there also. It's not working only in Ubuntu even though it shows the network is connected.

I use NAT as my Network Connection settings.

I rebooted the virtual machine, changed the network connection NAT to Bridged but nothing worked

Does anybody know how to solve this issue?

This issue is commonly related to time synchonisation. run

date -u

in both your host and your guest and compare the results. If the date and time in the guest is significantly different, you can run the command

hwclock --set --date="2020-05-11 12:37:25"  --utc

but being careful to change my date and time above to the one given by your host system.
