Can confirm, this solution worked for me on Lubuntu 16.10.
Edit this line in /etc/nsswitch.conf
hosts: files resolve [!UNAVAIL=return] mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] dns
hosts: files resolve [!UNAVAIL=return] dns mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] mdns4
This does not work for me but I do have IPV6 enabled. Does this only work if you have IPV4 only?
Dear thaDialator, this solution worked for me, thank you!
TW v12, in Ubuntu 16.04, same situation as ' Not ready. Please check your connection'.
