OpenHab 3.0.0 cannot install any Bindings

  • Platform information:
    • Hardware: 64 bit
    • OS: Windows 10
    • Java Runtime Environment: Zulu JDK 11
    • openHAB version: 3.0.0
  • Issue of the topic: When I try to install any binding e.g Hue Binding, it won’t stop saying Installing… And therefore won’t install.

Have you checked to see if it is listed as installed? The PaperUI in OH2 stuck like that a lot.

Yep. However, I’ve just installed OpenHAB3.0.2 from scratch (a complete fresh install) and now it seems to be working. Now brings on the task of having to configure everything from scratch again after being on OpenHAB 2.4!

There were major changes from 2.4 to 2.5 and more from 2.5 to 3.0.x. It is usually a personal choice whether to configure from scratch or upgrade, perhaps stepwise (2.4->2.5.12->3.0.2)

i wanted to try and preserve everything when migrating, but it seemed like it lost all bindings anyway, and I couldn’t get it to install as per my first post.
