All Google sites unreachable

by AmenoParallasse   Last Updated August 10, 2018 13:02 PM

I cannot reach Google sites by browser on Ubuntu 14.04. It is not due to Chrome, as Firefox gives the same problem. It happens also in incognito mode. It is not due to the network, as all other devices connected to the same WiFi are working. All other sites work, except Twitter. Some sites lag, and on AskUbuntu I get a message saying:

"Ask Ubuntu requires external JavaScript from another domain, which is blocked or failed to load"

How did I block Google, and how do I un-block it?


Output of ping (I interrupted it after some seconds as it just hangs)

$ ping
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
--- ping statistics ---
13 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 12096ms

Output of traceroute

$ traceroute6
connect: Network is unreachable

Can you update the case with the output from the following commands:

cat /etc/hosts

It can be DNS related issue but some of the sites are working so there are less chances of this

There can be several different reasons of this

First let's confirm is it browser specific problem or not Open terminal

ping If it is pinging then it is browsers issue or issue with port80 or port 443

If not pinging

FIREWALL Check whether your firewall is running or not

sudo systemctl status firewalld If running turn of firewall sudo systemctl stop firewalld To turnoff permanently sudo systemctl disable firewalld

Try pinging again if not pinging try checking IPTABLE rules
