Would a solution where you supply a percentage similarity level to find lines that match within that percentage be acceptable?

comment Resolve nested aliases to their source commands
You'll need to keep pressing this key combination until the line is fully expanded if you have aliases within aliases as is the case with the OP.

What does /etc/resolv.conf contain? Are you able to ping external IPs (e.g. ping 8.8.8.8)?

comment Count total number of lines before/after a pattern match
@MandarShinde You mentioned that you prefer a Bash solution; however, the answer you accepted uses sed and that's perfectly fine of course. I just wanted to bring to your attention that sed is not Bash. It is a Turing complete scripting language on its own. Similarly wc is not a part of Bash but a stand-alone tool.
