Summary0017681: network-online.target should mean network is really online
DescriptionStarting services that want network-online.target can fail because the network is not really online when it says it is.
 
The ExecStart command for the NetworkManager-wait-online service calls
ExecStart=/usr/bin/nm-online -s -q --timeout=30

From the man page of nm-online:

       -s | --wait-for-startup
           Wait for NetworkManager startup to complete, rather than waiting for network connectivity specifically. Startup is considered complete once NetworkManager has activated (or attempted to activate) every
           auto-activate connection which is available given the current network state. (This is generally only useful at boot time; after startup has completed, nm-online -s will just return immediately,
           regardless of the current network state.)

Removing the -s forces NetworkManager-wait-online to wait for the network to actually be up before nm-online reports success.
