Ubuntu 20.04 shows no loopback and no private IP numbers (how to solve?)

Received Response


I'm new to this Cloud VPS and Ubuntu so bear with me.

Running Ubuntu 20.04 as Cloud VPS

I have noticed on when run this command "ip link" there are no loopback IP like and even no IP number are assined to the ens3 NIC.

Can someone tell me what's wrong and how to solve ?

This is what I see:

1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN mode DEFAULT group default qlen 1000
  link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00
2: ens3: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 9000 qdisc pfifo_fast state UP mode DEFAULT group default qlen 1000
  link/ether 02:00:17:00:7b:22 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
  altname enp0s3

Howdy, Stranger!
