Today I upgraded from 2.2 to 2.3, and there is a lot of problems. One of the problem is that MQTT no longer works. It did not work when I upgraded from 2.1 to 2.2, but then I just reinstalled the MQTT action and thereafter it worked. However, now I can no longer find the “Actions” in paper. I thought it was on the “add-on” section, but there I can only see “Bindings”, “MISC” and “Voice”. Where can I find “Actions” in 2.3? Or do I need to do something else to get MQTT to work?

Here my \OPENHABIANPI\openHAB-share\openhab2-userdata\config\org\openhab\addons.config


What do you want to install the MQTT-Binding or the MQTT-Action. Both are in my file.
Change to Package_“standard” and restart openHAB, to get ACTIONS in PaperUI.

I just replaced the addons.config file with the backup that I did before the upgrade, and now all of a sudden I have access to the “Actions”!

Thank you ever so much!!!

That’s fine. Please mark as solved.

I know this is already marked as Solved but here are the steps I had to follow after upgrading Openhabian 2.2 to 2.3.

Uninstall MQTT-Binding, MQTT-Action and MQTT-Persistence
Stop Openhab2 service
apt-get purge mosquitto, mosquitto-clients
Install the Mosquitto option again using openhabian-config
In PaperUI install MQTT-Binding, MQTT-Action and MQTT-Persistence

Re-start broker.

All is good.
Not sure why this should be necessary but hopefully others may find it helpful.
