DNS failure - - network or configuration issue?
DNS and gateway configuration - - outage?
I’ve got an Ubuntu 18.04 server droplet deployed my DNS resolution is toast. I can’t access my server over ssh. I can only access my server using the web-based browser terminal emulator provided by DigitalOcean so I can’t copy and paste output. I need to use screenshots.
Here is screenshot with apt showing a DNS issue: https://i.imgur.com/KPw0WVV.png
Here are the contents of systemd-resolved –status: https://i.imgur.com/j5lhfY3.png
Here is the output of ip address: https://i.imgur.com/0crGJIT.png
The only file inside the netplan directory is 50-cloud-init.yaml. The contents of this file can be found here: https://i.imgur.com/fUs4BzZ.png
$ ping 126.96.36.199 produces: “Destination Host Unreachable”
$ ip -4 route produces:

$ sudo ip -4 route add default via 220.127.116.11 dev eth0 produces `RTNETLINK answers: File exists
A DO user with a similar issue asked last year in March but no one replied: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/temporary-failure-resolving-digitalocean-mirrors
Is this a failure on DigitalOcean network? If it is not an outage, what could be wrong with my configuration? What other information could I provide to better diagnose the issue?
