Ubuntu DNS Issue

Sometimes you end up having some trouble with ubuntu’s dns even if you actually edit properly /etc/resolv.conf.

That’s because resolvconf actually writes the file on /run/resolvconf/resolv.conf.

As a solution here’s what you can do:

$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure resolvconf


$ mv /etc/resolv.conf /run/resolvconf/resolv.conf

$ ln -s /run/resolvconf/resolv.conf /etc/resolv.conf
