This is an update to my previous post, correcting an error of mine - I
think that the extra "dhclient" threads were created by the script that
was meant to be diagnosing the fault, not by NetworkManager.
Consequently, some of the reasoning was not valid. However, it may
still be true that physical network errors are contributing to the
problem. I shall wait and see what happens.

Avahi-daemon withdraws address record
Status in avahi package in Ubuntu:
Status in network-manager package in Ubuntu:
For some reason, if I leave my Ubuntu VM up for a prolonged period of
time the machine will lose connection to the network. ip addr shows
that the nic port no longer has an address and an examination of the
syslog shows this:
May 27 14:19:38 matt-VirtualBox avahi-daemon: Withdrawing address record
for 10.0.2.15 on enp0s3.
May 27 14:19:38 matt-VirtualBox avahi-daemon: Leaving mDNS multicast
group on interface enp0s3.IPv4 with address 10.0.2.15.
May 27 14:19:38 matt-VirtualBox avahi-daemon: Interface enp0s3.IPv4 no
longer relevant for mDNS.
for no known reason.
The only reliable way to get the network to come back (that I have
found) is a full reboot.
