As I understand it, /etc/resolv.conf is *supposed* to be re-written to contain the nameservers specified by the DHCP server (see for example "man dhclient-script", though note that NetworkManager provides its own script overriding dhclient's default dhclient-script).

So, assuming you are using DHCP, perhaps the DHCP query failed.

I'll leave the full diagnosis to someone more knowledgeable, but maybe the dhclient or NetworkManager logs will help.

Kind regards,
