[StrongSwan] Starting the service providing the VPN connection failed

Hello everyone,

I’m having a problem with the strongswan VPN on Manjaro Linux. Everytime I try to connect to a VPN through strongswan I get the error “Starting the service providing the VPN connection failed.” This seems to have happened recently as I’ve used this very strongswan VPN before no problem. In addition, when I try and fail to connect to the VPN, upon shutdown of my PC I get an error message from systemd saying it’s waiting for shutdown of “charon-nm”. Even on a clean install of Manjaro it does not work.
I’m glad to receive any pointers as to what could solve the problem, or is it’s a problem upstream maybe.
