*** This bug is a duplicate of bug 1574347 ***
I have the same problem too I have ubuntu 16.04 on a duo boot with Windows 8.
Updated my ubuntu on 13/04/18 and now am no longer able to connect to my
phone's hotspot which would connect automatically before.
Anytime it tries to connect it keeps asking for the password.
** Attachment added: "this is what I tried in the terminal but it gives same
results no WiFi connection"

Network Manager regularly thinks my wifi is a wired device
Status in network-manager package in Ubuntu:
When I boot up my network doesn't automatically connect. I instead
see when I click the network manager applet that it's got no Wifi
devices listed. It thinks my wireless card is an ethernet device.
This isn't true and I have no ethernet devices in my system.
When this situation happens if I issue /etc/init.d/network-manager
restart it comes back up thinking it's a wireless device and happily
associates with my saved SSID.
