I’ve added this parameters:
net.ipv6.conf.all.disableipv6 = 1
ipv6 = 1
net.ipv6.conf.lo.disable_ipv6 = 1

in /etc/sysctl.conf


sudo poweroff

after this I can’t power on my droplet. ‘Something went wrong’ message appears. Thanks for help

Seems like droplet not starting because of billing debt. I even can’t create new droplet.

Unfortunately you’re in trouble

net.ipv6.conf.all.disableipv6 = 1

should be

net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 = 1

and /etc/sysctl.conf is vital to booting, it probably gives a syntax error which stops the droplet from booting. You can try booting the recovery kernel, and if that doesn’t work try asking support or deleting and recreating the droplet.
