Ignore this message. bluez should be started in the init scripts
via /etc/init.d/bluetooth. Since we can't distinguish services which
are not started and services which should be autostarted but lack a
service file we have that blanket error message since technically you
could autostart it (but the app may not be designed to be on demand).
BTW you most likely do not want to arbitrary upgrade D-Bus, though since
1.0.0 we have maintained ABI older version do not have that guarantee.
Since D-Bus is very much a system library if things break they will
break spectacularly and if you have installed one over the other without
uninstalling chances are older binaries are still pointing to the older
