Wlan0 error messages since last update 5.6.2-1

On my RPi4 with Xfce editions on the unstable branch.

I've moved to the unstable branch to test some new features from the kernel 5.6.0.1 on 6th April.
The kernel was updated to 5.6.2-1 on 8th April on my device.

The device runs with a wire connection, so I've never set the wifi : I don't need it.

Since this last kernel update I can see some errors on journalctl like below every 5 minutes roughly :

I don't know how to fix it.

Does it affect your internet connectivity?

No, it doesn't. But it's polluting my journalctl and I wanted to play around with it.

2 network services are conflicting with each other. systemd-networkd should not be enabled with networkmanager as they do the same thing.

sudo systemctl disable systemd-networkd
sudo systemctl disable systemd-networkd.socket
sudo reboot

Thanks it's working ! I don't have the link up link / down anymore.

By the way, I've noticed a strange message related to bluetooth which doesn't appear anymore :

It's not a big deal...

Glad you got it going. Yeah no big deal on that file marked as executable.
