I have an MSI GT70 that I recently installed Fedora 31 on. I have a Nvidia GeForce GTX 870M on board and I installed the Nvidia drivers using the RPM fusion method found here Once installed every time I reboot I get an error of :

"Failed To Update": Error calling StartServiceByName for org.freedesktop.fwupd: Timeout was reached. 

I have also noted that I have an additional boot option of:
Fedora (5.3.7-301) as well as Fedora (5.3.13-300).

Three questions:
What is causing this error?

How do I fix this error?

and lastly why the new boot option?

  • You have two boot options because the kernel was upgraded when you ran dnf update in the instructions. Those options are for the new one and the old one. Dec 7 '19 at 21:43

  1. It's probably tpm2-abrmd as discussed in Bug 1731758 - Error calling StartServiceByName for org.freedesktop.fwupd: Timeout was reached.
  2. Try removing tpm2-abrmd (not recommend) or wait for it to be upgraded to 2.3.1.
  3. You might try this to control it in your way: YUM/DNF Remove Old Kernels on Fedora/CentOS/RHEL.
