The updated packages fix security vulnerabilities:

A bug in Bluez may allow for the Bluetooth Discoverable state being
set to on when no Bluetooth agent is registered with the system. This
situation could lead to the unauthorized pairing of certain Bluetooth
devices without any form of authentication. Versions before bluez 5.51
are vulnerable. (CVE-2018-10910)

Improper access control in subsystem for BlueZ before version 5.54 may
allow an unauthenticated user to potentially enable escalation of
privilege and denial of service via adjacent access. (CVE-2020-0556)
