USB ports not working

I have the same annoying problem on my Thinkpad T495.
There is no message in the journal when using journalctl --follow while plugging in a USB drive. Looks like a hardware error.
Should we look for another driver? I lack ideas.

Hijacking and necrobumping are against Forum Rules so i moved to your own topic.
Please follow and share the information of your system as described bellow:

Did you reboot after an update?

journalctl -k shows you the kernel messages, maybe there is something?

Thanks for the help. I now enabled notifications so I should not miss future replies!
Found some possible hints with journalctl -k:

  • Some USB devices are detected, like the one below.
usb usb1: New USB device found, idVendor=1d6b, idProduct=0002, bcdDevice= 5.15
usb usb1: New USB device strings: Mfr=3, Product=2, SerialNumber=1
usb usb1: Product: EHCI Host Controller
usb usb1: Manufacturer: Linux 5.15.2-2-MANJARO ehci_hcd
usb usb1: SerialNumber: 0000:03:00.4

ohci-pci: OHCI PCI platform driver
uhci_hcd: USB Universal Host Controller Interface driver
usbcore: registered new interface driver usbserial_generic
usbserial: USB Serial support registered for generic

This is not my flash drive, but some other integrated device, since my flash drive wasn’t even plugged in.

  • I don’t know whether it’s related, but I also get:
ccp 0000:06:00.2: enabling device (0000 -> 0002)
ccp 0000:06:00.2: ccp enabled
ccp 0000:06:00.2: psp: unable to access the device: you might be running a broken BIOS.
  • There are also some Firmware bugs that may be related:
ACPI: [Firmware Bug]: BIOS _OSI(Linux) query ignored
acpi PNP0A08:00: [Firmware Info]: MMCONFIG for domain 0000 [bus 00-3f] only partially covers this bridge
tpm tpm0: [Firmware Bug]: TPM interrupt not working, polling instead

I should mention that I am running kernel 5.15.2-2 on my Thinkpad T495.

There should be - and there is, with the other device you tried.
Just not with the one in question here.

indeed :man_shrugging:

Strangely it is working now. Idk why and I have to observe this phenomenon better.

I would write down the working hours just in case if I will need USB ports usage again in future.
