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:
iface wlan0 inet static
What is causing this error? Thanks in advance.
