If you have a netcdf vector file, it gets identified in the QGIS browser as raster, hence can not be loaded.
Loading with "Add Vector Layer" works, but only with the filetype filter set to "All files". There is no entry for netCDF in the dropdown list.
BTW netCDF vector is only supported from GDAL 2.1 onwards.
[GDAL/OGR providers] Improve list of extensions, remove duplicates, support netCDF vector (fixes #17000)
- Read GDAL 2.0 GDAL_DMD_EXTENSIONS metadata item to retrieve a list of extensions
- Remove 'duplicated' drivers from list (such as KML/LIBKML, DGN/DGNv8)
- Support netCDF as a vector format (in addition to raster)
- For OGR formats, dynamically build list for unknown drivers ('static' list kept for now)
