fwupd doesn't detect UEFI ESP partition mounted to /efi

I just did a fresh install on my machine, and put my UEFI ESP directory at /efi as suggested in https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/installation_guide#Mount_the_file_systems . When I went to set up fwupd I ran `fwupdmgr refresh` and received a warning directing me to this url: https://github.com/fwupd/fwupd/wiki/PluginFlag:esp-not-found

Not wanting to deal with moving my ESP partition's mount point, I use the solution mentioned there by setting OverrideESPMountPoint directly.

I wonder if there is another problem with my system that this wasn't detected properly? If not, should we 1. the installation instructions 2. add a message to this article to avoid this problem?

I have now added the issue to the troubleshooting section. Adrian5 (talk) 14:58, 19 February 2021 (UTC)

Why not just add a simple comment like, "Ensure udisks2 is installed, otherwise fwupdmgr will fail to detect your esp"? This can be added in the main section Setup for UEFI upgrade. Since it's not, I spent too much time reading the main instructions, thinking I was doing something wrong. Pound Hash (talk) 23:06, 24 December 2021 (UTC)
