Failed to activate service 'org.freedesktop.fwupd': timed out

asked 2019-02-08 04:28:14 -0600


I've updated my Fedora 29 and a following error message appears in the settings window:

Error calling StartServiceByName for org.freedesktop.fwupd: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.TimedOut: Failed to activate service 'org.freedesktop.fwupd': timed out (service_start_timeout=25000ms)

I also noticed that the same error appears when I run command:

fwupdmgr get-updates

Can anyone help me deal with this problem?

"systemctl status fwupd" or "journalctl -xe" will give you more infos. Add those here pls.
