comment cinnamon doesn't start, bumblebee problem
ppa-purge, despite its name, does not actually remove packages. It only removes the named PPA from your apt configuration, then reinstalls any packages that have a version present in your remaining repositories. If there's a package that was provided by the PPA and not part of your standard repository, like bumblebee and bumblebee-nvidia, ppa-purge won't remove them. See Bug 945967 for confirmation. Run dpkg -l | grep bumblebee to see what bits of Bumblebee are still installed. If it shows no output, it's fully gone.

But did you use --purge when removing it? Removing the package without purging the configuration is likely the reason it was still broken.

comment dig @nameserver doesn't work
I downvoted because it is wrong. The root servers will answer queries, with a NS record pointing to the next server in the hierarchy that may be able to answer. They will not simply drop queries and send no response, which is what the asker was seeing.

comment Bash script to detect when my server is down or offline
Instead of pinging the server, you should test whatever it is that you care about the server doing. For example, if it's a mail server, it's much more important that it successfully sends and receives mail.

comment How to access a KVM virtual-machine?
For your first question, you need an X display (e.g. ssh -X to your server) to run virt-manager. For the second question, yes, SSH uses the network and so you need an IP address.
