I just installed Ubuntu 20.04 LTS on a laptop (previously had windows and bluetooth worked fine). I am now trying to connect to my bluetooth headphones. bluetooth turns on and can see devices, but when I try to connect to it I get a message saying connection failed: software caused connection abort

enter image description here

i opened this bluetooth devices window by searching and clicking 'bluetooth manager' in the ubuntu software search. do i need to install or update some other bluetooth stuff? Ive already done sudo apt-get update


you shouldn't need to install any addtional software for this to work.. Try not using this bluetooth manager and instead go into your system settings under bluetooth and connect from there.
