You've configured your network interface device(s) in /etc/network/interface, that means they are managed by ifupdown. If you want to manage your interface with network-manager/plasma-widget-networkmanagement, you should remove those interfaces from /etc/network/interfaces. See also /usr/share/doc/network-manager/README.Debian -- Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the universe are pointed away from Earth?
