Supervisor Add-ons manual update?

Am I retarded or is it impossible to manually update an add-on? I only see the “auto update” option.

Yes you are :slight_smile: Turn the auto update off and it won’t auto update. That means that you have to update manually…

But where is the button to manually update? Do I have to uninstall and install it again? :open_mouth:

If an update is available it will show at the top of the addons page.

I have node-red 6.2.0 installed, but 7.2.2 is released on the github page? Hence my confusion.
Also, I tried setting auto-update true and restarted the machine, but did not prompt an auto update - when are these executed?

Strange… I can’t tell when they are executed, but you’re right 7.2.2 is the newest version of node-red and I was able to install it via the update button that appeared.

  • do you have the newest version of HA and supervisor installed?
  • has your HA a valid internet connection? (ping google or

Yea, I just updated both hassOS (4.13) and the supervisor (245), and installed a few other add-ons without issues, so I definetly don’t have connectivity issues.

(Regardless of these issues I think the button should be visible at all times nomatter if there’s an update or not - atleast allow me to do a manual check. Hiding a button is never a good UX design imo.)

I don’t have any add-ons with an update to test it but I believe they should show up here when you click on “supervisor”:

In the older version it would show there but in the newer ones it would indicate an update with a colored bar like this:

You can then update the addon at its own page.

When you click on an addon that has an update available, it will show up at the top of the “Info” tab of that addon.

Alrighty, it started showing up after some time. So guess there’s just a random job that checks for updates which we can’t manually start.

I don’t recall how often the automatic update check is (24 hours I think), but you can absolutely manually trigger it if you want.

If you go to the Supervisor screen, then go to the “Add-on Store” tab, on the top right there are 3 dots. Click those, and in the menu that opens, click “Reload”. That will trigger an update of all addon repositories.


This does not seem to work for me, Z2M is on 1.18.1-1 on my system, but 1.18.3 on github.

Looking to update this soon, because of the log being spammed with "Template variable warning: 'dict object' has no attribute 'action' when rendering '{{ value_json.action }}', which is resolved in Template rendering warnings in latest Home Assistant beta for dictionary missing attribute · Issue #6987 · Koenkk/zigbee2mqtt · GitHub

Same issue :frowning: Waiting for Z2M to show an update required…

Sorted it. For some reason the repositories had become ‘disconnected’. I removed and re-added and now it can see the new Z2M. You will have a green icon and not a z2m icon if you have the same issue I had.

When you removed and re-added, did you lose setup / connected devices?
Not sure what you mean with the icons…
Rather update the “clean” way :slight_smile:

Remove the repository. Don’t touch your add-on. Then re-add the repository and voila.

Icon wise mine had turned into a green jigsaw, instead of the yellow Z2M icon (for the add-on).
