run rpm -V fwupd and check the results.

btw: "systemctl start fwupd" is enough. locate the service file pls, find the exec line and start that as root. If something is strange, you will get better/more/easier error messages that way.

systemctl status fwupd says fwupd[2521]: Failed to load engine: Failed to create table: table approved_firmware already exists and exits. I get the same thing running fwupd as sudo from /usr/libexec/fwupd/

rpm -V fwupd provides no output.

I possibly should not concern, so far my wifi from this ask is working without dropping out.
