I’m not seeing clear evidence of the problem from this I’m afraid. I saw a similar situation recently in which a customer had somehow uninstalled cloud-init, which caused the network to fail on next reboot. You might check if this is the case for you:

zgrep "cloud" /var/log/apt/history*

Should you find that cloud-init has been uninstalled, it may be easier to move data to a new droplet using our recovery ISO than to reinstall it without networking.
