Ubuntu: Can't enable Bluetooth. `sudo rfkill unblock bluetooth` does not help



Question:

I attempted all the solutions posted here.

The command sudo rfkill unblock bluetooth is not working.

I can move the switch to "on" but it still says "Bluetooth is disabled" in the menu on the left. Exiting the settings menu and coming back moves the switch back to "off". My system is a dual boot with Windows 10.

Any ideas?
