Error each time I use aptitude

Whenever I use aptitude upgrade/install/etc I get the following error.

Code: Select all

Error: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus)
It doesn't seem to affect anything other than creating this error message each and every time. Could anyone tell me what it is? How can I fix it please?

Thanks!

I'm doing some digging around, but a few questions:

When you say "aptitude upgrade/install/etc" do you mean aptitude on the command line, or the Synaptic Package Manager?

Does it actually affect your ability to install or upgrade, or is it just an annoying message?

Did you verify your copy of LMDE before installing? https://fred-barclay.github.io/VerifyLinuxMint/

Cheers!

All in the command line. No issues with the update manager. It does nothing negative but does irritate me.

This computer's been running for years. No idea if verified. Tried and failed doing it a few times before with other computers and so I'm guessing not.
