And the Ubuntu+xubuntu system doesn't have packages the Xubuntu-desktop
system doesn't provide? Even if not, keep in mind that the network for
the Ubuntu server image already needed to work, before any X
related, let alone Xubuntu related packages were installed, while the
install from the Xubuntu image might (or might not) establish a
connection with the Xubuntu tools, but perhaps at least by a
graphically environment. IOW the first way to establish an Internet
connection most likely differs.

I already wonder about the path /etc/networks/interfaces .
Perhaps just a typo.                        ^

However, on my Ubuntu and Arch install I access the Internet by my own
scripts started by systemd units, so I can't comment on NetworkManager
and it's GUIs.
