Updater not working

I posted on this same topic a couple of weeks ago but got no replies so I figured I’d try again…

I’m running HA 0.74.0 in docker on a NUC with Debian OS. I’ve got one port open on my router as I’ve moved to using a VPN for outside access.

this is the error I get in my log:

2018-08-03 23:00:02 ERROR (MainThread) [homeassistant.components.updater] Got unexpected response: {‘errorMessage’: ‘RequestId: 7b01922b-9792-11e8-9b30-0df41a88668f Process exited before completing request’}

Can anyone help explain why the updater stopped working for me? does it need some open port to work?

Nobody?

Fo troubleshooting purposes I installed a second instance of HA and opened the ports 443 to 443 & 80 to 80 using NGINX to forward traffic to the second HA instance. I have tested access to my second HA instance from the internet at my duckdns domain and it is working.

I’m still not getting the updater to run:

In my second HA instance (also running 0.74.0 in docker) I get the following:

2018-08-13 08:53:02 ERROR (MainThread) [homeassistant.components.updater] Got unexpected response: None

It should would be nice if someone could help me out with this.
