Apparently this is an old issue, which I've somehow missed and was unaware of.

No, the directory does not exist, it's create upon starting the service, though. This is most probably the reason I've missed it before.

The warning is issues when installing and the directory is created when the service starts for the first time.

But, this was just a side track, the issues the user is facing have nothing to do with dbus. See, but also,
