Droplet became unreachable

Hello. Suddenly, my droplet has become unreachable from the outside: I’m not able to ping it, not connect via ssh, telnet, etc. It shows: “Network is unreachable”. SSH throws: Can’t assign requested address I’m not even able to ping the gateway.

I’m able to access it only via DigitalOcean web console. It’s on Ubuntu 16 eth0 is UP

Any help?
