I just installed "fwupd" on my headless server but the service was unable to start and exited with the following error:
"Failed to load engine: Failed to load config: cannot process file of type application/x-zerosize".

I just guessed this error is related to missing mime libraries, so I installed "shared-mime-info". This fixed the issue instantly.

Additional info:
* package version(s) 1.2.0-1

Steps to reproduce:
Install "fwupd" on a headless Arch Linux server (i.e. no desktop environment, no x server or wayland) where "shared-mime-info" is not installed.
This task depends upon
