Docker hub authentication required

I have tried multiple times to upgrade HASS since there are announcements screaming from all corners of the universe telling me that I should. Every single attempt fails with “Authentication Required”. I even logged in with Docker Hub and my very first attempt failed. I’m on a metered satellite link so this is becoming a very expensive headache. Any advice?

You do not need to login to Docker hub to download HASS images. But recently Docker introduced a pull limit rate for both registered and unregistered users.

Anonymous free users will be limited to 100 pulls per six hours, and authenticated free users will be limited to 200 pulls per six hours.

Response code should be HTTP 429.

So a week later, I’m still having this problem. I’m on a satellite connection on my provider performs NAT upstream of me so I’m probably being penalized for other people sharing my public IP who are also using docker hub. I do have real-world IPv6, but I haven’t figured out how to force docker to use it. The reliance on Docker Hub seems like a weak link to me.

I was running in venv, but was urged by this community to switch to docker since I didn’t want to turn my OS inside-out to run Python 3.9.

So now I find myself at two dead-ends with HASS. I’m not really sure what to do next.
