In some cases, a “connect/disconnect timeout” error may appear on Ubuntu Server. The problem is with the “mei_me” module.
To resolve the error, you must run two commands on the server.
Execute the first command:
echo "blacklist mei" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/mei.conf
Execute the second command:
echo "blacklist mei_me" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/mei.conf
The “connect/disconnect timeout” error on Ubuntu Server has been successfully fixed and should not appear again.
