This would indicate the partial connection dict you're sending to
NetworkManager as part of the AddAndActivateConnection call doesn't
have all the required properties.

What NM needs here is either the object path to an existing AP that it
can pull the SSID and security settings from, or you need to specify
those manually (which you must do here because you're doing a hotspot).
 Apparently it's not getting that from the D-Bus method call, or
there's a bug in the code...

Can you share sanitized/condensed code that shows how you're calling
