After setting up IPv6, I still can't connect to the droplet with the new address.

This is most likely due to your internet service provider not supporting IPv6. In order for IPv6 to work, it needs to be available on both sides. Both the droplet and the computer you are trying to access it from must have support for it. In order to check if IPv6 is working on your end, please visit:

Also, check if you have turned on your bindv6only:

$ sysctl -a | grep bindv6only # check if it's 0 then
$ vim /etc/sysctl.conf (editing to provide the content "net.ipv6.bindv6only = 1")
$ sysctl -p
