How To Fix Ifconfig Command Not Found In Linux Ubuntu 20.04
Interface configuration (ifconfig) is a command line utility tool used to configure network interfaces in Unix and Linux operating systems.
In most of the newly installed Linux systems if you tried to view your network configurations using the “ifconfig” command you’ll be prompted with an error as shown in the below screenshot.
This is a simple guide to fix ifconfig command not found in the Linux operating system.
To fix ifconfig command not found, just install the
net-tools package on your system. To install net-tools, open terminal and type
$ sudo apt-get install net-tools
Then type the admin password to start the net-tools installation process.
When the net-tools installation has finished successfully, type ifconfig to test whether it works or not. Now, it must work perfectly without any issue.
lintut@localhost:~$ ifconfig eth0: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 inet 192.168.100.8 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.100.255 inet6 fe80::f03c:92ef:fe48:80f0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x20 ether f2:3c:92:48:80:f0 txqueuelen 1000 (Ethernet) RX packets 30879 bytes 162791965 (162.7 MB) RX errors 0 dropped 1 overruns 0 frame 0 TX packets 25730 bytes 3900424 (3.9 MB) TX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 carrier 0 collisions 0 lo: flags=73<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING> mtu 65536 inet 127.0.0.1 netmask 255.0.0.0 inet6 ::1 prefixlen 128 scopeid 0x10 loop txqueuelen 1000 (Local Loopback) RX packets 6146 bytes 2548511 (2.5 MB) RX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 frame 0 TX packets 6146 bytes 2548511 (2.5 MB) TX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 carrier 0 collisions 0

You might want to run ‘apt –fix-broken install’ to correct these.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
dkms : Depends: gcc but it is not going to be installed
Depends: make or
build-essential but it is not going to be installed or
dpkg-dev but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try ‘apt –fix-broken install’ with no packages (or specify a solution).
