I've seen this question and tried the answer at the bottom of the page yesterday and it seemed to work. But then I woke up today and had the same DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_BAD_CONFIG error for like over an hour. So then I tried that solution at the bottom again and it seems to have worked but just in case I created an account and am making this question. I also tried the answer with 26 likes but ran into a problem. I pasted sudo rm /etc/resolv.conf to my terminal and after typing in my password nothing happened.
EDIT: The error happened again as I was trying to post this. I am now using a wired connection.

When I pasted ls /run/resolvconf/interface/ in the terminal I got NetworkManager.
EDIT from comments: I have a modem from ubee, it's DDW365
Everything from "127.0.0.1 localhost" to "ff02::2 ip6-allrouters" was what was within my hosts file.

This is from my host.conf file:
