[SOLVED] Can connect to only some websites?

It seems like my Laptop (Dell XPS 9570 with intel 9260 wifi card) cant connect to dns server anymore. I can connect to the internet but only to some sites, sometimes the sites just dont load and I just time out.
If i try to ping a website like google.com everything is fine, but if i try to ping 8.8.8.8 or 1.1.1.1 i get:

sendmsg: Operation not permitted

The strangest thing is that it doesn't seem to be just cached sites I can visit some totally random sites seem to work, but others don't GitHub being the notable and really annoying example.

Checking the status of the NetworkManager services just yields:

Dec 25 23:03:56 mate NetworkManager[1502]: <info>  [1577311436.7256] manager: NetworkManager state is now CONNECTED_LOCAL

Dec 25 23:04:02 mate NetworkManager[1502]: <info>  [1577311442.7997] manager: NetworkManager state is now CONNECTED_GLOBAL

At this point I stuck and really frustrated any help is more than welcome big_smile

I know that this is not solution, just a workaround, but you may try this:

in Firefox: go to preferences > network (bottom of page) > settings and select DNS over HTTPS.

Report if that worked.

Re: [SOLVED] Can connect to only some websites?

Just found the solution. There seems to be a bug in the nordvpn-bin package which messes up the dns servers used in /etc/resolv.conf. If you want more details, the discussion under the package might be helpful. For now i just uninstalled it and the issue is fixed big_smile
Thanks for the help regardless.
