Sounds like the issue fixed by this commit.

It is probably related to the androiddump extcap, which uses Bluetooth, trying to see if a Bluetooth device is connected.

An unfortunate problem that I noticed recently is that Disabling the external capture interfaces does not, unfortunately, prevent the external capture interfaces from being initialized and checking to see if they are valid. This is because when the extcap preferences get registered, it calls all the extcap interfaces to get loaded (so that each can register its preferences). But that's before the other preferences get read, including the preference that says not to load the extcaps.

So while "Disable external capture interfaces" is the right idea, there's a bug in Wireshark. You might be able to simply remove the anddroiddump extcap from /usr/lib64/wireshark/extcap/ or wherever it's installed.
