Description Victor 2020-02-09 18:46:18 UTC
I do not observe a log of error logs :(

for dhcp changed the client from dhcpcd to dhclient
connection drop problems are gone

Reproducible: Always

You could start by describing the problem and the type of network hardware/configuration.

Enabling the -d/--debug flag (or setting "debug" in dhcpcd.conf) should also help.

Sounds like the interface link state is flapping.

Put this at the top of /etc/dhcpcd.conf
logfile /var/log/dhcpcd.log

This will produce a lot of output, but should show carrier being lost.

Basically this is an issue with your interface (or the kernel driver for it).
You could work around the issue with this config

interface eth0

But that is really a poor solution to what could be a hardware error as well.
