Traceroute doesn't work on Manjaro

I had an assignment in university to write my own traceroute using Python, while testing, I bumped into a problem, that if i don’t have my vpn turned on, traceroute (even the one that is built-in) doesn’t work: it says basically _gateway and refuses to go any further. However, when I turn on my VPN everything works fine. what might be an issue? Is it my network settings? How do I fix this?

Of course the default traceroute package from the repos works. Your topic title is incorrect, misleading and violates the Forum Rules:
