I've just tried on Fedora 33 Workstation and I can't reproduce, does this happen only on Silverblue, don't you know? Does this happen only on Fedora 33? I have some issues with drive redirection, so I can't test with my Silverblue VM right now. This might be just some missing close(). You can try killing the nautilus process, nautilus is not usually terminated immediately after closing...

Comment 2 André Monteiro 2020-10-22 09:10:58 UTC
I believe that it is a silverblue only bug and I think it has to do with the archive manager flatpak's sandbox if what I think is true that nautilus is using it for decompression which I don't know.

But I can't reproduce this anymore today, there might have been an update that fixed the issue!

Comment 3 André Monteiro 2020-10-22 09:17:32 UTC
Well I got a different error now after updating ventoy on a usb drive that has ventoy installed in it, it says unable to access "partition name" No object for D-bus interface when trying to opening it or ejecting the drive, killing nautilus process and trying again leads to the same errors and outcome.

Comment 4 Ondrej Holy 2020-10-22 11:14:16 UTC
Nautilus uses gnome-autoar library currently and it is not installed over Flatpak on Silverblue, so this is not probably related to the sandbox. Since you can't reproduce this now, let's close the bug as there is not much we can do without further info. The other issue you mentioned seems unrelated, but might be a bug in GVfs as per https://askubuntu.com/a/1128845. If you are able to reproduce it, can you please open a new issue for it with more details (ideally on https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gvfs/-/issues/new), please?

I am able to reproduce the second issue and gonna open a bug on gitlab, thanks.
