Roborock s55 Configuration error - (expected string or bytes-like object)

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f326df99308>

Hi there,

I am trying to set up my Xiaomi Vacuum in Home Assistant. I am running the following configuration:

# Configure a default setup of Home Assistant (frontend, api, etc)
default_config:

homeassistant:
    customize: !include customize.yaml

# Uncomment this if you are using SSL/TLS, running in Docker container, etc.
http:
    base_url: notmydomain.nl

# Text to speech
tts:
    - platform: google_translate

group: !include groups.yaml
automation: !include automations.yaml
script: !include scripts.yaml
scene: !include scenes.yaml

device_tracker:
    - platform: asuswrt
    interval_seconds: 10
    consider_home: 5

yeelight:
    devices:
    192.168.1.51:
        name: Aanrecht
    192.168.1.95:
        name: Bank
    192.168.1.126:
        name: Hal
    192.168.1.163:
        name: Slaapkamer
    192.168.1.161:
        name:  Eettafel

google_assistant:
    project_id: notmyproject
    service_account: !include homeassistant.json
    report_state: true
    exposed_domains:
    - light

asuswrt:
    host: 192.168.1.1
    username: notmylogin
    password: notmypassword
    protocol: telnet
    port: 23

Adding the following seems to break the configuration.

vacuum:
  - platform: xiaomi_miio
    host: 192.168.1.50
    token: notmytoken

When I check the config using the config checker it spits out the following error in the log:

TypeError: expected string or bytes-like object

In fact, the server refuses to boot at all when I add this to the config. It then seems to be causing a lot of cascading errors (which I assume are irrelevant)

Does anybody have a clue what to do?

Hi @Terabyte

Did you find out what caused your issue? Or did you solve it? I have a similar error (expected string or bytes-like object) and no clue how to solve it.
