I have tried for the second time to configure OpenVPN following some youtube tutorials and I have failed again. I ended up with the same mistake I’ve done few months ago, removing openvpn from the system.
Making this mistake, it costs me that connman doesn’t work anymore and I don’t have any internet connection on my Pi3 running OSMC.
The 2nd time I screwed up things I had to reinstall OSMC, but now I am reaching out for your help as I don’t want to reinstall everything.

I still can access it by ssh-ing into it on the local IP but no internet at all.
I have manage to download manually openvpn and armv7-connman-osmc and upload it onto the Pi, install both packages from terminal. It looks like I have an internet connection if I configure manually the network.
The main issue that still stands is, after I reboot the Pi, I have to do all the configurations again in MyOSMC.
