netplan [-debug] apply
netplan apply applies the current netplan configuration to a
The process works as follows:
The backend configuration is generated from netplan YAML files.
The appropriate backends (systemd-networkd(8) or
NetworkManager(8)) are invoked to bring up configured
netplan apply iterates through interfaces that are still down,
unbinding them from their drivers, and rebinding them.
This gives udev(7) renaming rules the opportunity to run.
If any devices have been rebound, the appropriate backends are
re-invoked in case more matches can be done.
For information about the generation step, see
For details of the configuration file format, see netplan(5).

netplan apply will not remove virtual devices such as bridges
and bonds that have been created, even if they are no longer described
in the netplan configuration.
This can be resolved by manually removing the virtual device (for
example ip link delete dev bond0) and then running
netplan apply, or by rebooting.
