First things first - I'm using Linux Mint 20 on a T480.
I can connect my Bose QC35, as well as my Sony WH-1000XM4 via Bluetooth to my T480. So, Bluetooth is apparently working fine.
Also I can connect my AirPods to my Smartphone as well as my T450 running Linux Mint 19. So the AirPods are working also.
But I cannot connect the AirPods to LM20 on my T480. They are recognized by the BT manager and upon clicking on the entry it attempts to establish a connection but doesn't succeed (no error - just stops).
A DDG search reveals that I am not alone with this problem - but nobody so far found a solution.
Does anybody have some ideas that might work? Maybe updating the Bluetooth software version manually? Or any CLI-based inspections of the issue?
