Try dhclient(8) manually from the command line.  If that doesn't work,
try spying on the connection using tcpdump(8).  Punch your firewall
properly.  That's what I'd do.  And please post the useful bits verbatim
(e.g. that interfaces entry--who says it's not malformed?).

The error messages are dmesg(8), ip(8)/ifconfig(8), tcpdump(8).
