I have this message while running apt update

Unit -.mount is masked.

I don't see any file or link to a service like -.mount.service in /etc/systemd/system or /etc/systemd/user or ~/.config/systemd/user or under the /lib/systemd directories.

There is nothing like it in the output of systemctl list units or systemctl --user list-units

So where is this unit file? OR What is this message about?

I had the same error message.

Command: sudo apt-get update
Result: Fehler: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.systemd1.UnitMasked: Unit -.mount is masked.

I closed the program gparted
