BTW, you don't need ifup/ifdown commands from ifupdown package in console mode to manage your connections (it can help without X environment)
The correct command is /bin/ip (from iproute2 package):

Code: Select all
ip link set enp7s0 up
ip link set enp7s0 down

## ip - show / manipulate routing, network devices, interfaces and tunnels

or nmcli for NetworkManager
Code: Select all
nmcli con up   id enp7s0
nmcli con down id enp7s0

ip is NOT a replacement for ifup and ifdown. They operate at different levels.
Code: Select all
ip link set enp7s0 up

(just activate the interface without configuring it in any way)
does not do the same as
Code: Select all
ifup enp7s0

(create if needed, configure and activate the interface according to /etc/network/interfaces)

So far, everything seems fine. No more error message.

You removed the package which installs the service having an error, and the error is gone. What a surprise.
This looks like Maslow's hammer rather than a real solution (find and fix the wrong config file) to me.
