    How do I disable ipv6 on Ubuntu 20.04

    I have followed every guide to disable ipv6 and yet after EVERY reboot I am still seeing it enabled. How do I disable it? net.ipv6.conf.eth0.disable_ipv6 = 0
    Accepted Answer: Looks like /etc/default/grub.d/50-cloudimg-settings.cfg overrides the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="console=tty1 console=ttyS0 ipv6.disable=1" line. So set it in that file and then run update-grub.
