I have a pair of Bluetooth headphones that I would like to use as a playback device. The first time I turned my headphones on and entered "Bluetooth pairing" mode, I was able to see them in the list of available devices and thus connect to them. After the connection was established, the headphones were correctly selected as the default output device.
However, something weird happens when I turn my headphones off and turn them back on. In particular, I am able to connect to them via Bluetooth but I'm unable to select them as the output device - they don't even show up in the Audio settings. The only way to make them work again is to:
2) Delete them from the list of known Bluetooth devices
3) Turn them back on and enter Bluetooth pairing mode
4) Connect to them
Can somebody explain why this happens and how could I solve the problem?
Here are some useful info about my setup:
KDE Plasma version: 5.22.1
Headphones model: Panasonic RB-HF420B

May be related to the problem, but also might not.
This is woefully out of date. - 5 months worth of updates.
Also, info about your Bluetooth adapter might be useful. Usually it is part of the wifi card, so looking for that info using KInfoCenter, or the lspci command could help.

Interesting, I didn't notice that. I've tried running
Could it be the reason why I'm not receiving updates anymore? I'm not sure why it complains about not being able to resolve archive.neon.kde.org, as pinging it doesn't result in any error.
Here's the output of lspci:
