How to Restart Mullvad Daemon After Update

Summary

After the Mullvad-VPN package gets updated via the AUR, the application will often be unable to start because the service is not running.

How to Resolve

Should the Mullvad-VPN package be updated and not automatically start the services, it can be resolved with one or more of the following commands:

# systemctl enable mullvad-daemon
# systemctl start mullvad-daemon

Restart the Mullvad application.

Should the application still fail to launch, the service may be running, but stuck. Use the following command to restart the service.

# systemctl restart mullvad-daemon
