I've updated my computer from ubuntu 18.04 to ubuntu 18.10 and now i'm not able to connect to my vpn.
I'm using the Pulse Secure Client 9.0R1(739) 64 bits and the error showed in the log is:
20181019132634.591969 pulsesvc[p18931.t18931] pulseui.error Failed to read return cookie from host checker process (pulseUi.cpp:1003)
20181019132634.592046 pulsesvc[p18931.t18931] pulseui.error initiatePreAuthHostCheck() failed, isPostAuth: 1 (pulseUi.cpp:1110)
When trying to connect it can't do the host check.

Thanks everyone for the help and best regards.
I think this is the same problem I have when using the latest kernels 4.18.x (on Ubuntu 16.04), earlier kernels work for me.
Looks like the authentication scheme is Host Checker + SAML. If so, then it is not supported as per the release notes
Yes, indeed the problem comes with the new kernel version, the 4.18.
I've tried with the old version, 4.15, and pulse secure works fine...
Thanks for mentioning this. An issue has been raised
Do you have an estimated date of a release being compatible with the kernel 4.18?.
Sorry for the delay. The issue is being analyzed now. Will update once we proceed further
BTW, the same problem applies for 4.19.x
Currently, Pulse Secure Desktop client does not support Ubuntu 18.10. We have provided the following KB for further tracking on support for Ubuntu 18.10

Pulse Secure is aware of the problem state we are actively discussion potential solutions for the issue. If there are possible known workaround, we will share this as soon as possible.
