In May my elementary OS network stopped working. I cannot connect to wifi or Ethernet. It seems the last update caused the network problem. Looking for the solution I came across this How can I fix Networking, Wi-Fi and Ethernet, not being available after update? I want to fix my network issues but I am having trouble understanding Step 2: Downgrade the Packages and Restart the Service.
I am still very new using non-windows/OSX operating systems such as linux. Can somebody explain to how exactly to downgrade the libnl packages? I have downloaded and saved the 3 libnl packages (from the link above) in my documents folder in elementary OS. I have tried to run
sudo dpkg -i libnl-*deb command in terminal then I'm prompted to enter my password. I enter my password and I receive this error.
> dpkg: error processing archive libnl-*deb (--intall): > cannot access archive: No such file or directory > Errors were encountered while processing: > libnl-*deb
I am not entirely sure what I'm suppose to do. Can somebody help me out with a simple noob step-by-step guide. I really like using elementary OS but I can't seem to figure this out. Help would be appreciated thanks.
