I have a new, fresh installation of Elementary OS 5 - Juno on a Razer Blade Stealth (2018). All of the updates have been applied (as of 02/02/19). I want to enable the firewall through System Settings -> Security & Privacy -> Firewall. I unlock the settings to allow changes to the system. After the firewall (ufw) is enabled, I get the following prompt about every seven minutes:

Authentication is required to run the Firewall Configuration.

Entering the password gives you about seven additional minutes before having to re-authenticate the firewall. Then it becomes a constant rinse and repeat series of events...

As you can see from my log snippets, the error continues after a reboot.

Any suggestions, comments or assistance would be highly appreciated.

Thank you.
