Why am I unable to ping the ipv6 gateway

I followed to enable and configure my droplet. I can ping6 myself but when it comes to the gateway or other ipv6 addresses, it returned “Destination unreachable: Address unreachable”. I checked the routing table, the firewall and the network interfaces configuration and found no errors. I created another new droplet which works well, and the configurations I mentioned above in the new droplet looks all the same with my old one. I find this weird. Could this be a digitalocean problem rather than my own?

That does sound like there might be an issue on our end if one droplet worked and another didn’t. Could you please open a support ticket so we can look into it more closely:
