HACS install issues


I have Home Assistant Supervised installed. (Home Assistant OS 10.5, Home Assistant Core: 2023.9.0)

My goal is to Install HACS. I am trying to follow a tutorial (here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8Gj0LiklRE) to install HACS.

When adding the HACS code into terminal to install it, I get the below error:

➜ ~ wget -O - https://get.hacs.xyz | bash -
–2023-09-25 21:43:02-- https://get.hacs.xyz/
Resolving get.hacs.xyz (get.hacs.xyz)… failed: Try again.
wget: unable to resolve host address ‘get.hacs.xyz’

I have tried going to https://get.hacs.xyz and copy and pasting the code into terminal, with no luck.

I researched on this forum and someone said to turn off ‘Protection mode’ on the Advanced SSH & Web Terminal. I tried that and relaunch HA and ran the script, but with no luck.

I’m not sure what else to do, if anyone has any advice. Thanks

Besides that link you posted throws up a security alert.
You have not specified what kind of HA install you have or what guide you are following.

You what now?

Please don’t share images of text… share the text as text.

Apologies, that was a terrible description of the problem. I have updated, hopefully that is clearer.

Did you try the alternative url?
wget -O - https://raw.githubusercontent.com/hacs/get/main/get | bash -

Also try to follow this: Download | HACS
While youtube can be handy for guides they tend to be outdated quickly regarding HA.
The official guides / githubs are usually more up to date.

Agreed. I run an HA-centric YouTube channel, and as a general rule, any videos older than ~6 months should only be taken for theoretical/inspiration value, not literal “type this exact thing or click these exact buttons” type instruction.

Things change WAY too fast with this platform.

So yeah, OP - if there’s a YouTube creator that you like, subscribe to them and follow them and watch the videos right when they come out, because looking for the info a year down the road isn’t likely to do you much good.

Because of this, I’ve already covered the same topic multiple times, to make sure I provide current, relevant info. It’s a constant struggle. LOL
