Fwupd 1.9.10 fails to connect to daemon

After the latest update to v1.9.10 fwupd is no longer able to start the daemon on demand with the following error:

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

Attempting to start the daemon manually by executing sudo snap start fwupd also doesn’t work. Has anyone seen the same issue?

Hi @hvbakel .

Try with this scenario.

sudo snap remove --purge fwupd

sudo snap install fwupd

sudo snap start fwupd
