Fedora 27 : Fix your distro with systemctl .

This is a simple tutorial about systemctl tool and how to fix one simple error show by status. The help of this cmmand can be found with:
# man systemctl
Let's see how we can see this errors and how this working. First let's see the status for systemctl command (:
# systemctl status
The output is this:
    ● laptop
    State: degraded
     Jobs: 0 queued
   Failed: 1 units

Detect the problem from list all failed units:
# systemctl list-units --state=failed
I find the rngd module is the problem. To fix this issue just use this commands:
# systemctl daemon-reload
# systemctl status rngd 
# systemctl stop rngd
# systemctl disable rngd
# systemctl enable rngd
# systemctl start rngd
The next step is reboot and check again if systemctl come with errors.
