That file does exist in Ubuntu, I just checked it on my installation of Ubuntu 16.04 Server, you sure you're using the right command? try to cd into /etc/network and then issue ls to list all the files/folders in that directory.

Also, can refer to http://askubuntu.com/questions/54728...-one-interface

I need assistance configuring the additional IPs that I ordered on my VPS running Ubuntu 16.04 Server (64-bit version). The email sent from OVH suggests that I check the guide at http://docs.ovh.ca/en/IpAlias/ which results in a 404 Not Found. After some poking around I found the correct URL, http://docs.ovh.ca/en/guides-network-ipaliasing.html, but it has no section specific to Ubuntu. I tried the instructions for Debian and derivatives, as Ubuntu is a derivative of Debian, but the file that it wants me to edit /etc/network/interfaces, has contents completely different than what shown in the document.

It sources /etc/network/interfaces.d/50-cloud-init.cfg which contains only

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto ens3
iface ens3 inet dhcp
but the docs show that /etc/network/interfaces should look like:
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
address 144.217.91.58
netmask 255.255.255.0
broadcast 144.217.91.255
gateway 144.217.91.254
Please help. Not seeking hand holding just instructions similar to what are already provided for the other distributions.
