        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

Has there been movement on this? On the surface it looks like a qualifier for 1000 cuts, particularly since most cloud VLANs start at 100 by default, in my experience.

If you're looking for a quick solution to this:

1) Create a VLAN connection using the GUI

2) Edit the file /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/[VLAN Connection]

3) Under [vlan] change the id to your proper id

4a) Reboot, or

4b) i)Delete the link on the command line: ip link del [vlan]

ii) Restart NetworkManager: service network-manager restart

Now your vlan should be working.

*Warning: The GUI will still show the VLAN ID as 100. If you don't edit it, it won't edit the file.*
