Thank you Bram and Antoine for trying to help.
It turns out I was getting this error due to a service that I had set
to Manual mode. Unfortunately, I do not know specifically which one.
Starting one particular service did not immediately resolve the error.
It was only after restarting a few different ones that the error
stopped. Inversely, stopping one particular service does not seem to
cause that error message to immediately happen either so I gave up
trying to track it down since my system is currently working. :)
Sorry for the bother.
