Whoops! Cannot reach System Daemon. (Nordvpn)

About a week ago, Nordvpn stopped working. I am not sure if it is due to system updates or a Nordvpn update, but anytime I try to access Nordvpn I get

Whoops! Cannot reach System Daemon.

I’ve run

sudo systemctl enable --now nordvpnd

but this seems to have no effect?

Has anyone else had this problem? Is there any easy fix?

you need to create the system group manually and add yourself to that group:

sudo groupadd -r nordvpn
sudo systemctl enable --now nordvpnd.service
sudo gpasswd -a your user name nordvpn

Thank you. I just did this and was just coming back to post as the solution and you beat me to it. Thank you for your help.

I use this gui for nordvpn, works really well and makes things very simple


That looks promising. I like the ability to see the available servers. Do I need to disable the terminal app or just install this on top of it?

Is it in aur?

Don’t think you need to disable the terminal app , couldn’t find it in the aur though. Im using the beta version, just download and follow the instructions. The gui for available servers is a godsend for me
