[Bug 1875036] Re: bridge stops working on focal update

Hello Javier,

Actually the release notes for the version you were at:


already deprecated ifupdown in favor of netplan.io.

Upgrade path to 20.04 has likely uninstalled bridge-utils because of
that. You can keep using ifupdown + vlan + bridge-utils + net-tools but
do have in mind that those tools are being deprecated in favor of:
systemd-networkd, netplan.io, iproute2, etc.

Good examples on how to obtain the same result using netplan.io can be
found at:


For now I'm marking this as a Invalid bug. If think there is anything
else on this topic I would suggest writing to Ubuntu Users mailing list,
a correct place for community-based technical support.

Best regards,

Rafael D. Tinoco
