Failed to start Configure Bluetooth Modems connected by UART

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f6170471048>

ISSUES:
After installing latest openHABian 1.5 (fresh install using prebuilt SD image), Bluetooth is not working. During boot I get error “Failed to start Configure Bluetooth Modems connected by UART”, and hciuart.service logs can be seen below. Serial port settings are all unchecked in openhabian-config.

Same issue can be seen when installing openHAB via APT on top of Raspian Stretch Lite, but first with only Raspbian, BT is working fine, but after installing openHABian, errors are the same as with this pre-build SD image.

Any tips?

Anyone? Do I really need to get another RPi with plain Raspbian to use Bluetooth, and relay it to Openhab?

I’ve gone through all possible RPi & Bluetooth related forum posts on the internet, but haven’t been able to find any fix for this, making me believe it is something related to Openhab specifically.
