org.bluez.error.blocked when trying to power on bluetooth

I'm trying to pair my lenovo yoga 2 pro with my bose bluetooth headset and was following the guide on the official arch wiki.

When trying to use `power on` in `bluetoothctl` I'm getting the following error:
Failed to set power on: org.bluez.Error.Blocked


I've google the issue, but no result really helped in resolving it.

Steps I took:
checked if the device was blocked with `rfkill` and unblocked it with `rfkill unblock`.

I rebooted the laptop and the device was still unblocked, however I still got the same error.

On some forums they suggested to use hciconfig to set the device up, however I've read on the wiki that this tool is no longer supported and thus no longer contained in the bluez-utils package.

Appreciate any hint!

Re: org.bluez.error.blocked when trying to power on bluetooth

I went through this today, so if it's still an issue, let me check some thing.

Do you have installed:

pulseaudio-alsa
pulseaudio-bluetooth
bluez
bluez-libs
bluez-utils

Is bluetooth.service enabled? What does systemctl status bluetooth say?

After all this, what does rfkill list say?

Re: org.bluez.error.blocked when trying to power on bluetooth

I was having the same issue, which I solved by running:

reset-alias
then:
power on

If other options like "scan on" don't work, run the following in the terminal:

rfkilll unblock all

Then, get back to the bluetoothclt interactive mode and enjoy.
