activating private network ip gives weird error in syslog

I activated the private networking ip on my droplet (Following the instructions provided by DO. ).
Now that droplet syslog is being spammed with the same error message every 1-2 second.

kernel: [138769.402520] icmp6_send: no reply to icmp error

does someone now where this error is coming from ? and how to fix it?

system and running programs:
debian 8.8
php-fpm 7.2.8
apache 2.4
postfix and dovecot

had a similar error when doing my project so had to add the routing rule by removing IPv6 address from eth0..for details check

I actuated the private systems administration ip on my bead (Following the directions given by DO. ).
