[SOLVED] [ERROR] [core.karaf.internal.FeatureInstaller] - Failed installing 'openhab-action-mail'

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007faed5c35ad8> #<Tag:0x00007faed5c35830>

On snapshot #1655 (same day M2 got through).
Previously had action:mail installed.
In the process of moving over to the mail binding.

Now I see this in my log every minute:

[ERROR] [core.karaf.internal.FeatureInstaller] - Failed installing openhab-action-mail

I have removed the mail.cfg file in the services folder and rebooted, made sure there are no active entries in addons.cfg, but it still tries installing the mail action.

In paperUI, the mail action is no longer listed, so I cannot uninstall it from there.

Any suggestions on how to make the feature installer stop trying to install the mail action?

It should stop when you also remove it from:


Maybe we should add an issue for distro (?). This will happen to all users that have bindings installed which have been moved to legacy. I guess that’s quite a few until 2.5 is released (coming from 2.4).

There is certainly room for improvement when add-ons move to the legacy add-ons causing such issues.

Not moving such add-ons to legacy also has its issues. It can be confusing when the UI shows multiple add-on versions and new users may start off with an outdated add-on. They might also get frustrated because discovery doesn’t work and they don’t see Things. :wink:

Thank you!
That did the trick (after a restart).
