Internet connectivity

Hey all, Linux noob here. Was trying to watch something that required me turning off my vpn but Internet wouldn’t work without it. Accessed a page that gave the following suggestion:

Today I had the same problem using the Private Internet Access(PIA) VPN. After a long time searching in Google for this problem, I found the solution. Disconnect from VPN and use the following commands:

sudo rm /etc/resolv.conf
sudo ln -s /run/resolvconf/resolv.conf /etc/resolv.conf

Now I can’t connect to the Internet at all and can’t seem to resolve it. Tried entering ipv4 manually, removing connection profile, so far to no avail.

It does still show as being connected to the Ethernet, and even the vpn when I turn it on.

Any help is much appreciated. Feel completely in the dark here. Hoping I didn’t really mess something up w that command
