since a reboot/updates yesterday my /etc/resolv.conf has been getting
wiped (when it happens I lose all dns). I don't know why. does anyone
have any ideas what might be going on?

# A sample configuration for dhcpcd.
# See dhcpcd.conf(5) for details.

# Inform the DHCP server of our hostname for DDNS.

# A list of options to request from the DHCP server.
# Most distributions have NTP support.
option ntp_servers

# Behave nicely on networks and respect their MTU.
# However, a lot of buggy DHCP servers set invalid MTUs so this is not
# enabled by default.
#option interface_mtu

# A ServerID is required by RFC2131.
# Some broken DHCP servers do not send one and dhcpcd can work without it.
# Some broken DHCP servers NAK incorrectly and do not include a
ServerID either so
# the default is to require a ServerID.
require dhcp_server_identifier

# A hook script is provided to lookup the hostname if not set by the DHCP
# server, but it should not be run by default.
nohook lookup-hostname
