What is in your /etc/resolv.conf file after reboot?  What exactly do
you do to fix it?  What do you expect to find in resolv.conf?

After reboot, when the anomalous situation pertains, please send
directory listings of everything under /etc/resolvconf and
/run/resolvconf and the contents of each of the files in those
