Code=exited status=1/FAILURE

syncthing has been working exceptionally well for me and from what I can tell everything is still working. But I am concerned about a warning message. I’m running my local workstation on Ubuntu 20.04 and server on Ubuntu 18.04. I just did a routine debian package update on my workstation, and files are still syncing OK. But I get the warning below when I do a status check on my workstation:

systemctl --user status syncthing

● syncthing.service - Syncthing - Open Source Continuous File Synchronization
     Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/user/syncthing.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)
     Active: activating (auto-restart) (Result: exit-code) since Mon 2020-07-13 07:03:20 CDT; 1s ago
       Docs: man:syncthing(1)
    Process: 180384 ExecStart=/usr/bin/syncthing -no-browser -no-restart -logflags=0 (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)
   Main PID: 180384 (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)

Pointing my browser to shows all is well, and likewise when I connect the browser to the server using ssh -N -L 9090: servername and go to

No warnings are showing for the server except for a number of messages like Device xxxx folder yyy has mismatching index ID for us and ... has a new index ID. Maybe I also need help interpreting what these are.

Maybe it was started outside of systemd and systemd is failing to start another instance. Or systemd is just confused, who knows.
