Installing the Firefox VPN client on my Ubuntu 20.04 system has been an interesting process. Now, though, when I turn on the VPN, I get a red banner in the window with a notice of a "background service error." It then disconnects from the VPN. The restore link does nothing. I've also tried running the client as sudo but that didn't work. Any ideas from anyone?
