Evo fails to connect to Gmail: “Failed to authenticate: The name :1.6 was not provided by any .service files"

Gnome Evolution - General mailing list
Xubuntu 18.04.02
Evolution 3.28.5-0 (Help | About reports it as "3.28.5-0ubuntu0.18.04.1")

I realize this isn't the absolute newest version, but it's not that old and was working prior to the last group of updates. Honestly I don't recall if Evo changed or not, however. When I launch it I get this error for both Google mail accounts I'm accessing via IMAP:
    Failed to connect account “[hidden email]”.
    The reported error was “Failed to authenticate: The name :1.6 was not provided by any .service files”.

I've seen this error before but not since 3.23 on Xubuntu 16.04 (which if I recall used a Gnome service for Google mail which is no longer the case?). I've stepped through the Google authentication process but the error persists. Apparently my Google-fu is weak today and searching has turned up nothing applicable.

Any pointers?

        Hi,
how did you configure the Google account, please? Was it directly in
Evolution, or in GNOME Online Accounts, or in Ubuntu Online Accounts,
or...

The error basically means that some process (depending on the way you
configured the account, though I guess evolution-source-registry) had
been connected to some other process through D-Bus and the other
process is now gone for some reason, but the connection is not
re-established (which may or may not be possible, it depends).
Restarting the evolution(-data-server) processes (like with:
`evolution --force-shutdown`) may or may not help. Restarting whole
machine would help, if it'll start the other process after restart too.

The question is why the other process disappeared. Was it expected or
unexpected (like when the other process crashed)? I do not have an
answer for this question, maybe your system logs crashes somewhere,
maybe not.
        Bye,
        Milan

It was configured directly in Evolution. The previous older version I referenced used GNOME online accounts (I didn't remember the exact name offhand) but I've had no issues until now with the newer version.

I'm about to head to work but I'll try restarting the processes (first, then rebooting if necessary) this evening after work.

Thanks for the info.

Well, that was easy - Stopped all, restarted and it's working fine. I didn't know it was that simple.

Thanks!
