    Job for dhcpcd.service failed because the control process exited with error code.
    See “systemctl status dhcpcd.service” and “journalctl -xe” for details.

    Here’s a look at the /etc/network/interfaces file:

    GNU nano 3.2 /etc/network/interfaces Modified

    # interfaces(5) file used by ifup(8) and ifdown(8)

    # Please note that this file is written to be used with dhcpcd
    # For static IP, consult /etc/dhcpcd.conf and ‘man dhcpcd.conf’

    # Include files from /etc/network/interfaces.d:

    allow-hotplug wlan0
    iface wlan0 inet static
    #wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

    What is causing this error? Thanks in advance.

    Yes, sometimes there are problems. New tutorial will be released soon. It will be faster and easier.

    Have a nice day.
