Bluetooth connection fails by connecting to the Logitech MX Master S2 mouse

I am using Linux Mint 18.2 Sonja and want to connect my new Logitech MX Master S2 mouse without using the bluetooth-dongle, but directly with the inbuilt bluetooth module of my notebook. This works so far with my PC after running the commands:

~$ sudo hciconfig hci0 sspmode 1
~$ sudo hciconfig hci0 down
~$ sudo hciconfig hci0 up

However by entering sudo hciconfig hci0 sspmode 1 I get the following error message:

Can't set Simple Pairing mode on hci0: Input/output error (5)

After reading a few articles in different communities they recommended to do the following:

alpha@Pavilion ~ $ bluetoothctl

As you can see, by trying to pair the mouse it is shortly connected and followed by the error: Failed to pair: org.bluez.Error.AuthenticationTimeout
Has someone an idea?

Thanks in advance!
