And you did check if the OLD MAC adresses are not registered somewhere, or the interface name changed,
which is prevention to get networking online.

No networking or dns, well, yes, a "comon" problem with ubuntu. ( for me then ). 

I never understand this, i run Debian and Ubuntu and with Distribution upgrades,
Very often Ubuntu failes with no networking or dns problems, while debian never failes me. 
In exact the same server setups.. 

If you post some of the errors and/or the bootlog, we might see something.
