Failed installing 'openhab-binding-mqtt' - 4.1.92.Final does not contain a manifest

I have just installed openHab on my raspberry pi.

And I have gone through the Setup Wizard but it seems there is an issue with one of the bindings:

2023-09-02 14:19:31.337 [ERROR] [core.karaf.internal.FeatureInstaller] - Failed installing ‘openhab-binding-mqtt’: Error:
Resource mvn:io.netty/netty-transport-native-kqueue/4.1.92.Final does not contain a manifest

Ohter bindings can be installed, only this one has issues as it seems.
What can I do to resolve this?

  • Is it a new install or an upgrade?
  • What openHAB version do you run?
  • If you use old OH3 add-ons they may be incompatible so try removing them and see if the issue happens.
  • You might also want to try clearing the cache: Clear the Cache

New install

Latest milestone release

No old oh3 add-ons in use

Clearing the cache sadly did not help

Perhaps the file got corrupt somehow during installation.

The file is preinstalled in:


You can check the md5sum if it is correct, e.g. this is what I see:

$ md5sum netty-transport-native-kqueue-4.1.92.Final.jar 
43854ad6a27a40ce8c6afcf20a141b43  netty-transport-native-kqueue-4.1.92.Final.jar

If it doesn’t match you can fix it by downloading a new one:


If that does not work reinstalling openHAB may help.
