Bluetooth Manager - 20.04 - no longer functioning?

The most recent update has caused bluetooth to fail on my laptop. not sure what further information will help, but here's a start:

hciconfig -a
hci0:	Type: Primary  Bus: USB
	BD Address: 00:00:00:00:00:00  ACL MTU: 0:0  SCO MTU: 0:0
	RX bytes:0 acl:0 sco:0 events:1 errors:0
	TX bytes:3 acl:0 sco:0 commands:2 errors:0
	Features: 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00
	Packet type: DM1 DH1 HV1 
	Link policy: 
	Link mode: SLAVE ACCEPT

And uname output:

uname -a
5.8.0-55-generic #62~20.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Wed Jun 2 08:55:04 UTC 2021 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I am not sure if anything I did helped; but it is up and running again after

rm ~/.cache/blueman-*
killall blueman

No luck, so I tried removing, reboot and reinstalling:

sudo apt remove blueman


sudo apt install blueman

But I am not sure that this actually did anything or if it was just rebooting that cleared up the bluetooth settings.
