Hi, Expedition its a Ubuntu 16.04 not a centos, there is no nmtui.
From the CLI try to use:
sudo ifconfig -a
Check for an interface other than the loopback, it could be named as ens33. Use that interface to configure the static ip address or the DHCP.
by default the system has been configured to use the interface named ens33, if in your case VMWare decided to change the type of the network interface by another one the name will change and the predefined configuartion will not be useful and will need to be adjusted to the new interface
Some useful links on how to configure interfaces on Ubuntu
