I have this error too (amongst others), I created a brand new installation of HA which ran fine until I copied my original configuration files back into the config directory. Sorry I’m not much help but it might give someone a clue of how to fix this problem.

What are you running home assistant on?

Running on Raspberry Pi 3B+ with 64GB SD card.

same for me! Rpi 4 virtual env. downgrade to 0.104.3 and it works again (but it is not a solution)

Home Assistant (Hass.io) or did you install using another method

I get the same error using home assistant core docker image. The same config worked in 0.104.3

Update: In my case it was because of netatmo configuration had changed. I still would expect a better error and home assistant to be able to handle a faulty config of a non critical component like that

I’m using hass.io - update to Hassos 3.9 was ok. I also tried to comment Netatmo, Samsung, LG but it do not help.I will install fresh system on SSD with X820 board so hope this will work.

REINSTALL
