You may need to stop and disable the system xl2tpd if you aren't able to establish a VPN connection. See "Issue with not stopping system xl2tpd service" in the file:

For backwards compatibility with most L2TP/IPsec VPN servers out there, network-manager-l2tp 1.2.16 no longer uses the strongSwan and libreswan default set of allowed algorithms, instead algorithms that are a merge of Windows 10 and macOS/iOS/iPadOS L2TP/IPsec clients' IKEv1 proposals are used instead for the default. The weakest proposals that were not common to both Win10 and iOS were dropped, but all of the strongest ones were kept.
