try on terminal
cd /etc Hit enter
ls -al Hit enter
Check whether you can find resolve.conf. If yes,

cat resolve.conf Hit enter

Don't forget the space between cat & resolve.conf and cd & /etc

it is "cat"<space>"/etc/resolv.conf" itl looks like you did not include the space after the command "cat"
