If we get this error in Ubuntu while restarting network service.

Here /etc/resolv.conf is a file move it to /run/resolvconf/resolv.conf.


# sudo mv /etc/resolv.conf /run/resolvconf/resolv.conf

Then create the symlink using ln -s.

# sudo ln -s ../run/resolvconf/resolv.conf /etc/resolv.conf

Then restart the network service

# sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart

Or there is an Alternative way to reconfigure the network service by issuing following command.

# sudo dpkg-reconfigure resolvconf

This will be solution for the titled error.
