[SOLVED] bluetoothctl message "Waiting to connect to bluetoothd..."

My first attempt to use a bluetooth device, a Logitech keyboard. I inserted its dongle in usb port and from instructions on https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/bluetooth I did

pacman -S bluez bluez-utils
modprobe btusb
bluetoothctl
  Waiting to connect to bluetoothd...
Ctrl-C
hciconfig hci0 sspmode 0
  Can't set Simple pairing mode on hci0: Network is down (100)

Which network is it referring to?
Additionally, I have also tried 'bluetoothctl -a' and adding my username to the lp line in /etc/groups, no difference

Have you started the bluetooth service?

# systemctl start bluetooth 

and if so are there any errors listed when you type:

# systemctl status bluetooth

Re: [SOLVED] bluetoothctl message "Waiting to connect to bluetoothd..."

Please don't necrobump 6 year old solved topics.

As mentioned in the OP, make sure bluez is installed.

Open a new topic if this is insufficient.

Closing.
