This error is came from
bluetoothctl when trying to connect to and headphones or speakers. After searching all over I finally found a solution, it seems like a common problem but the answer seems hidden under a pile of similar questions.
Who is this For?
If you are running Arch Linux and Bluetooth works but speakers of any sort will connect then not connect or just won’t connect.
So after following the Arch Wiki I still could not figure out why my Bluetooth mouse worked but not my speakers. I use
bluetoothclt a terminal based control but this will also fix problems with any GUI.
If you have already installed it and it stopped working, reinstall it, not sure why but I just had to do this. I found this solution here.
dmsg | grep Bluetooth I noticed
hci all over the place so it clicked.
If you have got everything installed like
bluez pulseaudio-bluetooth and all of their dependencies as well as some sort of Bluetooth control like
bluez-utils (bluetoothctl) or a GUI like
blueman then installing
bluez-hid2hci should get you all fixed up. Make sure you start and enable

I am not 100% sure about this. it seemed to work in my case but I have only tried it on my one laptop, but I have done it at least three times from reinstalling Arch after distro hopping.
Hope this helps someone and makes it a bit easier then it was for me to find.
