Yet another NetworkManager fault, most likely. The thing lives to its
reputation once more.

Of all the ways to test network connection you just used the least
informative one. Please share the output of "ip a l" and "ip ro l" next
time this happens.

Pretty normal.

That's systemd thing.

And here you've used non-free blob, which is most likely completely
unnecessary. But it's unlikely that any of these are somehow related to
your problem.

And that says that your NIC has problematic Generic Receive Offload
implementation, yet kernel enabled it.
Try "ethtool -K enp2s0 gro off" if it bothers you, but it'll unlikely
will have any visible effect.

Network Manager. See above.
