[SOLVED] Bluetooth icon lost and device (dead) after latest update

Thu Mar 11, 2021 10:42 pm

Hi all,
I have an issue on my RaspberryPi 3B+, after latest update I lost bluetooth icon on my taskbar and the command:

Code: Select all

sudo systemctl status bluetooth
Give me the output:

Code: Select all

bluetooth.service - Bluetooth service
   Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/bluetooth.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)
   Active: inactive (dead)
     Docs: man:bluetoothd(8)
I restored an image from 20 of december 2020 (buster) and all is working good.
after the command:

Code: Select all

sudo apt update
and

Code: Select all

sudo apt upgrade -y
same error no icon and bluetooth is dead.

How can I solve?

Thanks

Andrea
