Installation Issues - Warning: Unexpected error in dashboard thread

I am posting again, as I can’t connect to a dashboard.
I’ve seen several threads with this error message, but nothing that pointed to a firm resolution, and also unsure if updates made did not make these fixes obsolete. Running from AIO installer.

Is it still that we should run aiohttp for version 1.2.0?
When I issue the command pip show aiohttp, I don’t get anything back (I find that strange)
UPDATE: I did a - pip3 show aiohttp and it returned version 2.2.3

I also see that I have a permission issue on “compiled” directory, but I don’t have such a directory, most likely because it couldn’t be created I guess.

I did everything under sudo, so the owner and group is root.
Found someone that said to issue the following commands:
sudo chown -R conf
chgrp -R conf
But after the first command I get the error “missing operand after ‘conf’”

So is aiohttp the issue or the permissions or a combination of both?
Any assistance would be appreciated and would most likely help others.

This is a permissions error - the user you are running the dash as needs to be able to create files and directories in the config dircetory.

Thanks again for your assistance, I was happy to hear that I didn’t have to downgrade any components. It was in fact just a permission issue.

For reference:
I ended up issuing the command: sudo chown pi:pi on every file in my appdeamon directory and subdirectories.
