Troubles installing HACS

Hi there,

I’m trying to install HACS to a brand new Hassio installation on a Raspberry Pi 2. I have placed the hacs folder inside the custom_components folder of my config and then rebooted HA.

When I then try to add the integration, the dialog just returns to the integrations list, and the following appears in my log file:

When I try to set the token via the yaml :

hacs:
  token: !secret hacs_token

(with hacs_token the value of my github token) Home Assistant just does not boot, with the same error.

I have tried HACS 0.17.3 and 0.16.3, both give the same result. Am I doing something wrong?
I’m running HA 0.102.3 with Hass.io supervisor 192 and HassOS 2.12

Thanks!
