Secrets request error: No agents were available for this request
I'm using Kubuntu cosmic on a Dell Precision 5520, this is the list of versions:
ii network-manager 1.12.4-1ubuntu1.2 ii network-manager-gnome 1.8.18-2ubuntu2 ii network-manager-openconnect 1.2.4-1.1 ii network-manager-openconnect-gnome 1.2.4-1.1 ii network-manager-openvpn 1.8.6-1ubuntu1 ii network-manager-openvpn-gnome 1.8.6-1ubuntu1 ii network-manager-vpnc 1.2.6-1
I have two issues that might be related. First, from time to time, a new connection for a network I already used appears on the list. I found that in fact, there are new files in
-rw------- 1 root root 353 Aug 13 2018 WIFI_Network -rw------- 1 root root 353 Mar 15 14:47 WIFI_Network-6b12f9ec-5192-43c6-93fe-3483188b7957 -rw------- 1 root root 353 Mar 15 13:47 WIFI_Network-e59ef0ca-b7ca-408a-b954-cfc872acbd6a
The only difference I find in those files are the UUIDs:
$ sudo diff -u /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/WIFI_Network /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/WIFI_Network-6b12f9ec-5192-43c6-93fe-3483188b7957 --- /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/WIFI_Network 2018-08-13 23:23:59.915045200 +0200 +++ /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/Invitados-6b12f9ec-5192-43c6-93fe-3483188b7957 2019-03-15 14:47:06.037622154 +0100 @@ -1,6 +1,6 @@ [connection] id=WIFI_Network -uuid=4c16e4b0-1a1d-43a5-932a-f34530985742 +uuid=6b12f9ec-5192-43c6-93fe-3483188b7957 type=wifi permissions=user:mdione:;
The second issue is that when I try to connect to one of those n-plicated networks, NM just don't and I get no UI feedback about it. I stopped the daemon and restarted with
--debug. You'll find a full log attached.
The relevant lines I think are:

Any ideas what could be wrong?
