Hi, I run homeassistant on a Raspberry Pi 4 with DietPi v7.8.2 and just updated homeassistant from 2021.8.8 to 2021.11.3 with the dietpi update script without any issues visible during the update process.
After the successful update, I tried to restart HA server, but it warned me:
Logger: homeassistant.components.websocket_api.http.connection Source: helpers/check_config.py:27 Integration: Home Assistant WebSocket API (documentation, issues) First occurred: 20:43:52 (2 occurrences) Last logged: 20:55:11  cannot import name 'async_clear_install_history' from 'homeassistant.requirements' (/home/homeassistant/.pyenv/versions/3.8.10/lib/python3.8/site-packages/homeassistant/requirements.py) Traceback (most recent call last): File "/home/homeassistant/.pyenv/versions/3.8.10/lib/python3.8/site-packages/homeassistant/components/websocket_api/commands.py", line 185, in handle_call_service await hass.services.async_call( File "/home/homeassistant/.pyenv/versions/3.8.10/lib/python3.8/site-packages/homeassistant/core.py", line 1491, in async_call _LOGGER.debug("Service was cancelled: %s", service_call) File "/home/homeassistant/.pyenv/versions/3.8.10/lib/python3.8/site-packages/homeassistant/core.py", line 1526, in _execute_service self, handler: Service, service_call: ServiceCall File "/home/homeassistant/.pyenv/versions/3.8.10/lib/python3.8/site-packages/homeassistant/helpers/service.py", line 728, in admin_handler if call.context.user_id: File "/home/homeassistant/.pyenv/versions/3.8.10/lib/python3.8/site-packages/homeassistant/components/homeassistant/__init__.py", line 148, in async_handle_core_service ) File "/home/homeassistant/.pyenv/versions/3.8.10/lib/python3.8/site-packages/homeassistant/config.py", line 921, in async_check_ha_config_file File "/home/homeassistant/.pyenv/versions/3.8.10/lib/python3.8/site-packages/homeassistant/helpers/check_config.py", line 27, in <module> from homeassistant.requirements import ( ImportError: cannot import name 'async_clear_install_history' from 'homeassistant.requirements' (/home/homeassistant/.pyenv/versions/3.8.10/lib/python3.8/site-packages/homeassistant/requirements.py)
So now the system is running the old version and I am afraid it might not start up again after updating DietPi and restarting the HA service due to the error, and also I would be stuck with version 2021.8.8
I asked this yesterday at the community.home-assistant.io forum https://community.home-assistant.io/t/need-help-cannot-import-name-async-clear-install-history-after-update-to-2021-11-3/357056, but I thought this might also just be DietPi related and maybe anyone else here can confirm an un/successful HA update to 2021.11.3.
Some more info about HA I shared in the other thread as well:
If I check “/home/homeassistant/.pyenv/versions/3.8.10/lib/python3.8/site-packages/homeassistant/requirements.py” I find
@callback def async_clear_install_history(hass: HomeAssistant) -> None: """Forget the install history.""" if install_failure_history := hass.data.get(DATA_INSTALL_FAILURE_HISTORY): install_failure_history.clear()
so why can’t the function not be imported and I do anything to fix this or work around it? I tried to google the error message, but I did not find anything that helps me.
I did the update because I tried to install HACS before, but when I wanted to activate the integration it told me my HA version was outdated. So then I did the update and I guess the error might also be caused by the HACS installation. What I did to install HACS was to run
root@DietPi:/mnt/dietpi_userdata/homeassistant# wget -O - https://get.hacs.xyz | bash -
So now I tried moving the hacs files somewhere else, hoping this might avoid the installation of HACS and not cause the error, but I got the same error when trying to restart HA. It was probably a stupid thought anyway, because the installation was done when I ran the script.
Sorry if this a dumb question, sorry for my english and thanks for any helpful advice pointing me in the right direction… I would also appreciate notes from advanced users that no one will bother to help me because the problem is so obvious (like when I missed some instruction) or so specific and unique that it is not worth looking into and rather restore the backup. I do have an up to date backup I can restore, but I would rather figure out what is wrong and how to fix it, also because I would guess that I run into the same issue after trying to update from my backup of 2021.8.8.
Here are some more info about my system (Raspberry Pi 4 with DietPi v7.8.2):
