[ubuntu] Problems launching Startup scripts – Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS

[ubuntu] Problems launching Startup scripts – Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS

I have been reviewing different How To articles on using /etc/rc.local as well as the systemd compatible rc-local.service. Neither of these are currently providing the service I am hoping for on startup.

The /etc/rc.local file is a 9 line script. It appears to launch half of the scripts within the file, but does not complete them. What could interrupt it? (The /etc/rc.local file excutes flawlessly from the command line, and completes execution.)

The systemd rc-local.service reports the following:

● rc-local.service – /etc/rc.local Compatibility
Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/rc-local.service; enabled-runtime; vendor preset: enabled)
Drop-In: /lib/systemd/system/rc-local.service.d
Active: active (exited) since Mon 2020-11-30 16:56:00 EST; 33min ago
Docs: man:systemd-rc-local-generator(8)
Process: 2774 ExecStart=/etc/rc.local start (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)

Nov 30 16:55:59 itssafe-NUC7i5DNHE root[4976]: IPSet: es wget failed.
Nov 30 16:55:59 itssafe-NUC7i5DNHE root[4982]: IPSet: at wget failed.
Nov 30 16:55:59 itssafe-NUC7i5DNHE root[4994]: IPSet: lt wget failed.

The Three lines indicate that wget cannot retrieve remote file from the network. I am using the following configuration:

[Unit] Description=/etc/rc.local Compatibility

[Service] Type=forking
ExecStart=/etc/rc.local start

[Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target

Neither the /etc/rc.local or rc-local.service execute completely (or as in the case for the service,after the network is running).

How do I resolve this problem, and get the startup script to execute as it does after the workspace is available?
