Raspbian + Docker + HassIO

Do you have SSD and Conbee II on RPI4 with no problems?

I have installed raspbian on raspi4.
I just tried to install this. I followed the guide, installed dependecies etc… I installed docker from apt, with apt install docker.io

But I dont understand, where is the actual home assistand application?

I installed with this, and now I can see two new docker images running.
curl -sL "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/home-assistant/hassio-installer/master/hassio_install.sh" | bash -s -- -m raspberrypi4

I ran the script a second time, and it started another container called homeassistant which listens on port 8123…

Your second link is rather old, probably out of date by now.

I’m guessing you are running latest Raspbian? I didn’t install the optional network-manager. With it my Pi 4 looses wifi after reboot.

On a fresh Raspbian install, try the following: (from here)

sudo -i
apt update
apt upgrade
apt install -y software-properties-common apparmor-utils apt-transport-https avahi-daemon ca-certificates curl dbus jq socat

curl -fsSL get.docker.com | sh

curl -sL "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/home-assistant/hassio-installer/master/hassio_install.sh" | bash -s -- -m raspberrypi4

problem solved I see menu does not call hassio but supervisor

I’ve recently moved to Docker + HassIO. For some reason, my HA update, when run from the GUI very rarely manages to do its job. The update doesn’t conclude, and the system seems to clog up somehow so I can’t even run any commands on it.

How can I troubleshoot this? What logs should I be looking at to find what the issue is?


I don’t use hassio o my knowledge is kind of limited on that.

But I think there are some supervisor logs that you can look at to tell you what is going on with the updates and the reasons why the update failed…I think.

Don’t ask me where those logs are located because I honestly have no idea.

SSH to raspbian (not home assistant)


sudo docker ps -a

to list te docker containers. Find the id of supervisor

sudo docker logs <id of supervisor>

to view the log of supervisor

docker logs hassio_supervisor

Should work. Sudo should be unnecessary if you correctly followed the instructions when you install docker and added the usual user to the docker group. You can also use a docker logs -f hassio_supervisor to give real-time updates. Use homeassistant instead of hassio_supervisor for homeassistant logs as well.

Thanks for the swift replies. The updates have worked a couple of times for me since posting my question, but now I’m stuck with the same issue I had before, i.e. the homeassistant container fails to start properly.

It seems the logs don’t really capture what the issue is. Any ideas on how to dig up more info/fix the issue?

The hassio_supervisor log shows:

20-04-29 05:07:38 ERROR (MainThread) [supervisor.homeassistant] Error on call Cannot connect to host ssl:None [Connection refused]

20-04-29 05:10:18 ERROR (MainThread) [supervisor.homeassistant] Home Assistant has crashed!

The docker log for the homeassistant container shows:

After Docker I installed Hassio-supervisor. New installation script is:

> sudo su
# curl -sL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/home-assistant/supervised-installer/master/installer.sh | bash -s -- -m raspberrypi4

But I have error:

[email protected]:~# curl -sL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/home-assistant/supervised-installer/master/installer.sh | bash -s -- -m raspberrypi4
[Warning] This installer is no longer supported.
[Warning] Home Assistant might work today, tomorrow maybe not.

Please typ "not supported" to continue this installation

The hassio_install.sh not actual now. What can I install HASSIO in Docker containers?

You need to copy the script and run it locally.

Not runing:

[email protected]:/home# curl -sL installer.sh | bash -s -- -m raspberrypi4
bash: line 1: !DOCTYPE: No such file or directory
bash: line 2: html: No such file or directory
bash: line 3: syntax error near unexpected token `<'
'ash: line 3: `<head id="ctl00_ctl00_Head1"><title>

This GitHub branch now is archived, and README.md announced: “This install method has been deprecated”. I see the another installation algorithm.

You need to run it locally. I used it yesterday!
(Also you don’t need to ‘curl’ it if you downloaded it - don’t use curl -sL)

./installer.sh | bash -s – -m raspberrypi4

Hello, due to this installation process not supported anymore (depricated), does someone know what are the new instruction/commands to type (for having hassio on raspberry desktop, indeed only way to keep the supervisor icon on HA session)? indeed I read in the message error that it could be possible, but I don’t know what to type :frowning:

1st option: flash the Home Assistant OS image for your Pi - you keep the supervisor, you lose access to a full OS

2nd option: Install Raspbian as the OS and install Home Assistant Core in venv or docker. You gain access to a full OS, you lose the supervisor.

Hello jason :slight_smile: I just realize that despite the installation is not supported anymore, the http://xxx.xxx.xx.xx:8123 seems to work and I see the supervisor. So I don’t really understand why it works :sweat_smile: do you think I will have a problem later on? (=I don’t understand "the installation is not supported :thinking:)

If I can keep my installation, I had another question : when I will restart my Rpi later , does someone know what are the commands I will need to type on the terminal, please? Thank you in advance for your help

Try my fork… curl -sL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/krdesigns-com/supervised-installer/master/installer.sh | bash -s -- -m raspberrypi4
