[RELEASE] Hubitat Package Manager (HPM) -- HubitatCommunity

A 1.8.8 version has been pushed to HubitatCommunity, handles some missing Repos.

I've created a Video that shows the step by step on an Empty hub. I wiped one of my hubs and show the Installation of Hubitat Package Manager and then using it for the first and second time.

Just tried the upgrade and get error


I believe you but this is what I got when I did the upgrade from Dominic's 1.8.2 to 1.8.3:

I'm going to delete, go back to DMeglio 1.8.2 and try again...

It proceeds w update, one more error and several manifest errors

Those are in fact, manifest errors that the app owners should fix. The updated Master Manifest on HubitatCommunity has a corrected entry for one that I found and fixed. The other will need to be corrected by the owner.

I was not able to reproduce the error. Again, no disbelief, just recognizing I must be clicking differently :smiley:

An obvious 2nd option to upgrading is just Repair. That copies the same (1.8.3) HPM from either repo. :slight_smile:

Repair seems to be clean

FWIW, I got the same error on both my hubs as @starcom.

However, the update was applied. Also, to be complete in the information I've provided, I updated from your version 1.8.2A to 1.8.3.

Ah... 1.8.3.A might be the culprit, I did that upgrade test last night and didn't see that error. I can try it again though :slight_smile:

If you're feeling unsure, give Repair a shot, just to get back to: sure.

Just retested and got no error but the repos aren't in the same states when I do a delete-reinstall. Your copy is already "running" with an old list of Manifests. When I delete and reinstall, there are no manifests and so it picks up the 1.8.3 set. So.. no error.

I think the One/Two Punch of an Upgrade and/or a Repair will cover most situations.


Updated, seemed to go fine.


Same here, two hubs and both had the error. As far as I could determine I was upgrading from 1.8.2, and not 1.8.2A.

Simply FYI I got a different error when updating. My production hub is a C-7, and it updated fine. My C-5 dev hub, when an update was attempted, hung on Installing updates. Doing a repair of HPM went fine and fixed things on the C-5:

Both running, both started the update with HPM 1.8.2 from Dominick Meglio’s repository, both now at 1.8.3.

I got the same error as starcom did a repair and all seems fine. C-5 hub coming from 1.82.

There's a pattern, but most errors have different line numbers. I have to think it's HPM updating itself while it's running... (method performUpdates) is common to all the messages.

I think the pattern of doing a Repair after is probably best.


Updated for me with out any errors at all on both hubs.

C7 hub here and it failed (hung forever). But a repair seemed to set things right. Of note I am a Beta tester currently running: I only share that for troubleshooting purposes not to disclose any Beta details...

Same. C7. HPM showed there was an update (for HPM), I've ran it and it's just stuck on the below screen for 10 minutes now:

If you see the

It won’t finish, just go to repair at that point.


My hub update also froze, but seems like the update was completed and now runung 1.8.3.
