Strange error message in Marshmallow

    I've posted this to the Lenovo forums but haven't found a solution.

    After I upgraded my Moto G (Gen 2) to Marshmallow, I started getting the error message shown below. This error pops up if the screen has been off for a few minutes (as little as one or two minutes). When the screen comes on after I press the power button, I see the error message in front of my login screen. The error display gives me a clickable "OK" button. I click OK and everything is fine. Sometimes the same message pops up while I'm using the device... again I click OK and keep going. So it doesn't seem to cause any problems, but it is annoying.

    After I leave the phone on overnight (I leave the phone on and charge it), the message shows numerous times in a column with a single OK button at the bottom.

    It's always exactly the same error message.

    I've tried a factory reset and booting in safe mode. No change. I still get the error.

    Can anyone suggest a remedy or some other debugging activities?

    Is your phone root-ed?

    Thanks for responding Thom. No, it's not rooted.

    Well.. I can't be sure, but it looks like my problem went away. This morning I stopped getting the message noted above. There were a couple of Google updates overnight... Google Play and (I think it was) Google Docs. No other changes of which I'm aware. We'll see if the "fix" sticks. :rolleyes:
