New installation error on RPI3 - Updating docker

New install using the RPI imager onto a RPI3, model B. The observer webpage reports everything is connected and healthy. The logs though say that there is an error installing home assistant. Repeated error messages:

[supervisor.docker.interface] Can’t install 500 Server Error for http+docker://localhost/v1.43/images/create?tag=2024.1.2& Internal Server Error (“Get Deleted because I can’t include a second webpage link as a new user: context deadline exceeded”)

I managed to resolve this by editing the home assistant dns, using the following steps:

  • Connect to the RPI locally using a keyboard and display. Make sure youre network is connected.

  • At the screen where it says >ha type login
    -That should then give you a #

  • Type ping to confirm that you do have a network connection

  • Type vi /etc/resolv.conf

  • This brings up the dns settings in an editable format

  • You might see your routers IP address there. Mine was

  • Edit that to be (Googles dns server)

  • Press the esc key twice

  • Type :wq

  • That will save and close the file.

  • You can type login again to go back to the home assistant screen

  • Just wait a few minutes, home assistant should be able to then update and proceed with the setup. You can monitor the progress at http://homeassistant.local:8123/

My installation completed sucessfully and home assistant is now running on my raspberry pi 3
