Noticed with use of
that 'systemd-networkd.service' was enabled. In the following wiki page

it states that ;
Tip: Before you start to configure your container network, it is useful to:
disable all your netctl services. This will avoid any potential conflicts with systemd-networkd and make all your configurations easier to test. Furthermore, odds are high you will end with few or even no netctl activated profiles. The netctl list command will output a list of all your profiles, with the activated one being starred.
As netctl had been working fine for me I tried;
Code: Select all
# systemctl stop systemd-networkd.service
# systemctl disable systemd-networkd.service
then rebooted and I am back with my original setup. All's well that ends well. Pity a system upgrade can lose you hours of head scratching...
