Spotify 1:1.1.42.622.gbd112320-37 claims it's behind firewall and stays in offline mode. Computer is most definitely connected to Internet, all other software works and disabling firewall changes nothing.
Rolling back to 1:1.1.10.546.ge08ef575-19 immediately solves the issue and Spotify works as expected.

I have the exact same issue although the Spotify application can act as a remove control for the web player if the app is launched after I start playing music in the web player.

 

How did you install a specific version? I've installed Spotify via Snap and

> snap info spotify

tells me that it's tracking latest/stable and gives me a list of the "latest" channels, where the stable, candidate and edge are the same version as the installed one (1.1.42.622.gbd112320-37) which doesn't help much.

If you have set up software source as http://repository.spotify.com and install with aptitude, then you can downgrade to 1:1.1.10.546.ge08ef575-19 by issuing the command:

sudo apt-get install spotify-client=1:1.1.10.546.ge08ef575-19

The previous version is still available at this source, at least right now:

apt-cache policy spotify-client
spotify-client:
Installed: 1:1.1.10.546.ge08ef575-19
Candidate: 1:1.1.42.622.gbd112320-37
Version table:
1:1.1.42.622.gbd112320-37 500

It seems the old version is available at Linux Mint mirror, not on original Spotify source.

Also had this happen after upgrade to 1.14.622.gbd11230-37 from .1.1.10.546.ge08ef575-19 In my case disconnecting from a VPN helps.

 

With 1.14.622 sometimes it starts working when just connected to a VPN but stops after ~3 minutes.

Direct Link to Mint package if anyone needs it: http://mirrors.evowise.com/linuxmint/packages/pool/import/s/spotify-client/spotify-client_1.1.10.546...

Using this package seems to solve the connection issue for me but the audio stops playing after a while. Using KDE Neon 18.04. I guess there is some difference in the Mint package.

Same problem here, @Spotify.
I'm using the linux version for quite a while, and this update seems to be unable to correctly detect if there is an internet connection available. I'm also connecting and disconnecting from VPN quite often, but this was not an issue with the previous version.

Downgrading to this version solves the issue.

I fixed this by disabling NetworkManager's connectivity check:

 

    $ sudo vim /usr/lib/NetworkManager/conf.d/20-connectivity.conf

    # add enabled=false to the [connectivity] section

    $ sudo systemctl restart NetworkManager.service

 

For more info, see:

 

    $ man NetworkManager.conf

 

Don't forget to toggle it back on if you need to use Wi-Fi via a captive portal.

vodsel's solution worked for me on KDE, only the file path was 
/usr/lib/NetworkManager/conf.d/30-connectivity-kde.conf
