I installed Ubuntu 22.04 on my laptop Asus N551JM. After installation, Bluetooth adapter is not available. How I can solve this problem?

sudo dmesg |grep -i bluetooth

Look a this part:

[    3.935429] Bluetooth: Patch file not found ar3k/AthrBT_0x11020000.dfu

This file is missing.

I had the same problem and solved it with this solution here:

The original post where I found the solution is this: Patch file not found ar3k/AthrBT_0x31010000.dfu

I hope it helps you.
