Any ideas guys?

I’m usually a guy who takes error messages literally. So if openHAB tells you, that it cannot download something, the first thing I would do, is to check the internet connection.

That said, is the box you run openHAB on capable of reaching the maven repository to download the binding artefacts and its dependecies?

Note that there were repository problems, now fixed. Try again.


That was the issue.

While I was sleeping - openHAB magically fixed itself.

Thanks. Glad it was not me after all.
