Some websites cannot be reached after upgrading to 18.04

Asked by Laurent Bertola on 2018-06-18

Hello,

I was using Ubuntu 17.10 and everything was working fine, including wireless connection.

I upgraded today to 18.04 and now some websites cannot be reached. For example mercola.com cannot be reached. I also cannot ping it:

laurent@laurent:~$ping mercola.com
PING mercola.com (199.66.167.131) 56(84) bytes off data.

[...]

And nothing happens.

Some websites I can reach without problem e.g. google.com

Thanks for your help!

I think that has only to do with the website and has nothing to do with Ubuntu 18.04. Maybe a misconfiguration of the webmaster or something like that.

ping www.mercola.com
PING www.mercola.com.cdn.cloudflare.net (104.17.115.84) 56(84) bytes of data.

Hello,

It is not just the ping, the website was impossible to reach in firefox and google-chrome and it was just an example, some other websites were also unreachable e.g. regenere.org

But I have found a workaround in google, someone suggested to remove the ethernet profile from the network menu (I had one ethernet profile from a previous wired connection I no longer use). I did this and now everything works fine.

Can you help with this problem?
