Network interfaces error

I just ran sudo service networking start on Ubuntu 16.00 and came out with error message
Code:
Job for networking service failed because control process exited with error code see systemctl status networking.service

I tried to also run this command
Code:
systemctl status networking.service

I also got an error message
Code:
failed to start Raise network interfaces

Well, that might be the first step in a long and stony itinerary. You now need to investigate why it failed to start. Could the IFs be raised before? When did that stop functioning? Any system / systemd modifications ever since? Possible HW failures? Or, maybe a far fetched thought: does it fail because the IFs are already running?

Above is stating that the service can't raise the interface(s). Is that all or do you get more info?
When I issue the command
Code:
systemctl status networking.service
● networking.service - Raise network interfaces
   Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/networking.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)
   Active: active (exited) since Fri 2017-10-27 09:48:38 CEST; 8h ago
     Docs: man:interfaces(5)
. . .

you see IFs have been raised, but there's also a hint to read a man page. Therein, there are references to config files which you might want to double check (Are the right IFs listed? Do they exist?) and examples plus links for further reading like e.g. the Debian Reference manual.

thanks
I did add a route in the /etc/network/interface file
and wanted to stop and start the networking service using
service networking stop and start

Looks like there's something missing in your status output.

How did you add that "route"?
Did you remove that and try to restart?

I just added it to the file /etc/network/interfaces
