No Community addons


I just did a fresh install on a Raspberry Pi 3B following the guide .
Everything booted and detected already a bunch of devices.

I’m struggling because I don’t see the community addons.
If I go to http://homeassistant.local:8123/hassio/store and then search for things like “ftp” or “plex”, I find nothing. I just have 2 empty categories “Official add-ons” and “ESPHome”.

I found here: hassio-addons/repository: Home Assistant Community Add-ons ( that there is an URL that I can add as a repository, but if I try, I get this message:

Can’t add GitHub - hassio-addons/repository: Home Assistant Community Add-ons, already in the store

(even I don’t see it listed anywhere)

I tried to reboot, nothing changed.

I’ve the version core-2022.7.5

I found this topic: Community addons have disappeared from addon store - Configuration - Home Assistant Community ( but it doesn’t say how he reinstalled manually the addon

The logs are empty(except lines saying the repository is already present)
Any idea what I’m missing?

NOT an expert here, but you may try this.
Go to the Add-on Store:

Click on the meatball:

Then make sure that is in the repository list.

For me this list is totally empty, and if I try to add EspHome, I get this error:

Cmd('git') failed due to: exit code(128) cmdline: git clone -v --recursive --depth=1 --shallow-submodules /data/addons/git/64a7cfe9 stderr: 'Cloning into '/data/addons/git/64a7cfe9'... fatal: repository '' not found '

From what I gather, it should be: GitHub - esphome/home-assistant-addon: ESPHome Home Assistant Add-on
And when I try this, I see:
Can't add, already in the store

But anyway, it’s not the EspHome module that I’m trying to install. I really don’t understand why I don’t see anything in this list but keeps saying that I’ve already them in my list.

Sorry, this is beyond my experience.

I think I found out another thread with the same issue:

No valid repository for - Configuration / Frontend - Home Assistant Community

Luckily, I was having the official repo available, so I was available to install the “terminal” addon, then I was able to run

git init
git config http.postBuffer 524288000

at the home directory.

After a reboot, it works, I now see the other repositories.

For me, ESPHome isn’t there either, and I have no problems. But if you’re looking for community integrations, you should have HACS installed:

I will add your solution to my anemic knowledge base.

BTW, my understanding is that the terminal add-on blocks port 22 for security reasons. I couldn’t use SSH (Putty) when entering through my DuckDNS URL. The add-on “SSH & Web Terminal” does not block Port 22.
