Errors while building in VSCode

I’ve installed PlatformIO in VSCode and I’m trying to compile the Marlin firmware within it. When I hit build, it tries to download a few packages but the process exits with an error. Since this is a known issue, I tried Step 2 of the FAQ but that didn’t help either. When I try to download the files manually, I get a Forbidden! error (with curl it simply creates a zero bytes files). How do I fix this?

Edit: This is the output at the terminal:

Which files/packages are you trying to download? What curl command line? Maybe a server is down, or something on your end is blocking it.

My bad! I’ve edited the Q with the output I see on the terminal. Trying to install toolchain-gccarmnoneeabi . Not sure if that is the only one it will need. I’m on a Windows 10 machine with Norton Security installed but I’ve explicitly marked the files, folders and executables as safe. Tried this command:

curl -L "https://dl.bintray.com/platformio/dl-packages/toolchain-gccarmnoneeabi-windows_amd64-1.80301.190214.tar.gz" -o toolchain-gccarmnoneeabi-windows_amd64-1.80301.190214.tar.gz

I get a slightly different URL when browsing dl-packages, but still no luck… usually just get a file saying ‘Forbidden’.

@ivankravets Do you know why it’s not possible to download anything from https://dl.bintray.com/platformio/dl-packages/ or https://dl.bintray.com/platformio/dl-platforms/ via the web browser or curl?

I was able to get it to work I think, on a fresh install on windows.

Possibly try “pio update” from the command line? Try installing “atmelsam” or “ststm32” as they also rely on “toolchain-gccarmnoneeabi”?

EDIT:
That last bit might not help. It seems “ststm32” relies on an older version of “toolchain-gccarmnoneeabi”
The package server that my system reached out to seems to be working ok though.

Ok Try this!:

pio platform uninstall nxplpc-arduino-lpc176x
pio platform install https://github.com/p3p/pio-nxplpc-arduino-lpc176x/archive/0.1.2.zip
pio platform update

This is what mine looks like now:

Platform NXP Arduino LPC176x

Updating toolchain-gccarmnoneeabi        @ 1.90201.191206 [Up-to-date]

Then this happens on “pio run”

PackageManager: Installing framework-arduino-lpc176x @ >=0.2.2
Downloading...
framework-arduino-lpc176x @ 0.2.3 has been successfully installed!

Then it appears to finish compiling successfully.

Glad it’s working for you now.

What’s the problem re: nxplpc-arduino-lpc176x? From the looks of it, you’re specifically installing 0.1.2.zip, which for some silly reason still says it’s 0.1.1 when you check the manifest in the zip file. :man_facepalming: I presume your platformio.ini specifies that some version of framework-arduino-lpc176x greater or equal to 0.2.2 is required, hence the install of 0.2.3 when you try to build / run it.

There is a problem with our account on Bintray. We work with their technical support. Nevertheless, PlatformIO has decentralized architecture and all packages are mirrored. So, if one mirror goes offline the other will replace it.

If we talk about your issue the problem is linked with a custom nxp_lpc1768 dev-platform. Not all packages are mirrored. However, this issue also should be fixed soon with the new PlatformIO Universal Registry where community will be able to publish own dev-platforms and tools. We will mirror them automatically. The new registry is already in testing. We hope to launch it this month.

This seemed to work!
