System error message pops up randomly

2020-02-20, 11:14 AM

Hi,

 

Since the Android 10 update, a system error message pops up every few minutes:

 

/proc/self/net/dev open failed eacces (permission denied)

 

See attached screenshot. I'm not able to find the cause of this. It appears randomly, and it is not related to any app which is open. Are there any other users with the same issue? Is there any way to find out the cause of this?

A full reset probably fixes this. But I prefer not to do this.

Solved! See the solution

Try this,

 

Phone settings >Apps > 3Dots and reset app preferences.

 

Then long press the Power button until the phone reboots.

 

You will have to allow access ]/permissions again when opening your apps.

 

 

HTH :)

Agree. 

 

Another option. Can you test in Safe Mode to see if this is an app issue? To go into Safe Mode, press the physical power key, then press and hold the pop-up "Power off" key until the Safe Mode instructions pop up.

 

Thanks,

Glad I could help. Sometimes an apps permission data can get damaged and then the system makes a fault call :(

 

If it reoccurs it's most likely a badly installed app . Then it's detective work to find which one it is :O
