> That being said, elsewhere in the thread it was reported that the original poster was using Cloud Edition, not Server Edition. This environment group does NOT pull in NetworkManager or Cockpit by default. So if Cockpit was installed manually it would have pulled NM in as a dependency solely of Cockpit.
Hmm, I wonder if this might actually be a bug in the way that Digital Ocean creates those images, then. It definitely adds Cockpit above and beyond what we normally ship in the cloud image. So probably their image-creation script should be updated to mark NetworkManager appropriately, if it's going to end up actually using it. That's not really something we have control over though.
