Wifi was working fine, but then it simply decided to stop connecting. It can still see every Wi-Fi network but it cannot connect to any. The wired connection still works, but I have no idea of how to solve this.

cat /proc/version

Did you try to reinstall NetworkManager? Can you try to connect manual?
