    Then try again.

  • :) You wouldn't be able to connect to the VPS if the network is down. However as @Ishaq has suggested, it might be a problem with your resolv.conf.

    You can check Scaleway status here.

  • 16.04 uses systemd, set name servers for systemd-resolve and it will be persistent.

  • As Ishaq said, you add nameservers to /etc/resolv.conf otherwise you'll get those can't resolve messages. You can use the regular Google DNS servers or most providers will provide some you can use too, and if you're using IPv6 make sure to add IPv6 name servers as well.
