I assume you are using the Fremont tunnel-server (188.8.131.52), based
on the IP it gave you.
Try something like this:
iface he-ipv6 inet6 v4tunnel
up ip route add ::/0 dev he-ipv6 metric 1
post-up ip -6 addr add AddressInYourRouted64/128 dev he-ipv6
Replace 184.108.40.206 with whatever tserv you are using ("Server IPv4
address" on he.net), and AddressInYourRouted64 with any address in your
"Routed /64" on he.net. You can simply copy the address it gives you,
append a "1" after the ::, top it off with a /128, and it should work
the next time you reload your interfaces file.

I don't know, as I don't use Ubuntu's network manager. If you set it
through the interfaces file, I don't think you will need to even touch
that anymore. I don't know why that guide is confusing people with using
the network manager when it should save properly in the interfaces
I highly suggest reading up more about IPv6 address blocks and how they
differ from IPv4's, whenever you have free time; it will help a lot.
And for the record, no one really cares what your IP is, and censoring
it simply makes it harder for us to help with your problem. Both yours
and NoOp's censoring failed in some places. Though I like how you
censored out the static 2001:470 part instead of the endpoint...
