I’ve just installed the HACS integration, but after reboot I’ve reach this error in notifications tab:

Has anyone a solution?

Thanks in advance

Hi alanmasu,
i had identical issue, i found this way to solve:

1. Open a terminal
2. Change to the user that is running Home Assistant
3. Run the HACS download script
wget -O - | bash -

you can read entire documentation in this link

i hope can be useful
i hope my english is understandable…

This not working if you have installed with snap.

I’ve been searching for days to an answer to this if HA is installed with snap. @doru did you find a solution by chance?

Thanks. solved my Issue ConfigFlow invalid handler.
