Error with bluez when updating system

Postby tanguero » 2017-09-28 02:27

Hi, all:

I'm running Jessie, and when I ran an update today, I received an error when bluez was trying to update:

Code: Select all
Setting up bluez (5.23-2+deb8u1) ...
Job for bluetooth.service failed. See 'systemctl status bluetooth.service' and 'journalctl -xn' for details.
invoke-rc.d: initscript bluetooth, action "restart" failed.
dpkg: error processing package bluez (--configure):
 subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1


systemctl status bluetooth.service reveals:

Code: Select all

This machine doesn't have bluetooth, so I don't need bluez, but it's required by gnome so I can't remove it. Any ideas on what is causing this or what to do to fix it?

Thanks.

maybe just disable bluetooth entirely. or at least mask bluetooth.service

That did it. I just stopped and disabled the service with systemctl. It was able to update then.

Thanks.
