I am using ubuntu 18.04 on my ASUS-X550L laptop. In the settings it says "No bluetooth found. Plug in a dongle to use bluetooth." I tried sudo rfkill unblock all and systemctl restart bluetooth.service. It didn't work.

Output of sudo rfskill list all

0: phy0: Wireless LAN
    Soft blocked: no
    Hard blocked: no

Output of systemctl status bluetooth.service

● bluetooth.service - Bluetooth service
   Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/bluetooth.service; enabled; vendor preset
   Active: inactive (dead)
