Flush DNS cache failed and Backup routing table failed on Ubuntu 20.04

I am able to establish a VPN connection, but I immediately get disconnected from the VPN a few seconds later. I believe that connecting to the VPN is causing my WiFi to disconnect, but I am not sure if this is what's actually happening.


I am on Ubuntu 20.04.6. I downloaded the Debian client directly from the Fortinet website. I have been able to connect to the VPN fine on Windows/Mac computers, so I don't think it's an issue authentication issue, especially since I am passing the authentication phase on the Linux.


So far, I have tried to disable IPv6 and the local Ubuntu firewall, but I am still experiencing the same issue.


Here are the device logs showing the errors for "Flush DNS cache failed" and "Backup routing table failed"

Which version of FortiClient? Which version of FortiOS? Are you doing split tunnel or full tunnel?
