HACS Failed to Load

Hello All,

I am trying to add HACS but I have following errors, note I have tried to remove and install a few times following the exact procedure.

Thanks in advance.

Follow all the HACS install instructions, restart HA or reboot host, clear cache on browser, try another browser, etc.

No luck have tried multiple browsers, different machine, cache cleared . . .

This is the second log warning I get

custom_components.hacs.config_flow::HacsFlowHandler calls async_show_progress without passing a progress task, this is not valid and will break in Home Assistant Core 2024.8. Please report it to the custom integration author

The 2nd warning is related to an HA core change a few weeks ago and is known issue.

No lock, any other thoughts? Or I’ll have to live life without HACS….

Did you reboot the machine after downloading HACS and before installing the HACS integration ?

Yes HA rebooted as per install and uninstall steps.
