Mi Wireless Switch cannot successfully add thing

  • Platform information:
    • Hardware: ARMv7/armhf/4gb/32gb
    • OS: Raspbian buster latest updates
    • Java Runtime Environment: openjdk 8
    • openHAB version: 2.5.5
  • Issue of the topic: cannot successfully add Mi Wireless Switch thing, using Ember coordinator.

The switch is detected and I can add it via paperui but once that is done the status is:
Status: OFFLINE Node has not completed discovery

Is this a frequent issue? What else can I try to make it work?
