This is not a normal situation, only the following Endless OS releases are affected by this issue:
To check which release you are running:
If you believe you are affected by this issue, and have confirmed that you are running one of the affected releases listed above, follow these steps:

sudo ostree admin upgrade
You may be prompted for your user account password. Your password may not appear as you type it in, but if prompted, type it in anyway and press Enter.
