My Ubuntu 16.10 is a fresh install. But the Ethernet connection isn't connecting. Am I missing something?

I faced this issue when I upgraded from 16.04 to 16.10 . The problem was that file /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d/10-globally-managed-devices.conf was not created, so my wired connection did not work. I manually created the file as follows:

touch /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d/10-globally-managed-devices.conf

Afterwards, restart NetworkManager:

service NetworkManager restart
