Stuck resolving esp32dev dependencies

Hi All,

I am having a lot of trouble with getting my platformio setup working for the last few days. I have been building and uploading code to my ESP32 devkit seamlessly for the last month and after fresh installing Ubuntu (24.04 and 22.04) and Mint (21.3) I can’t seem to get even an example project to initialise.

The steps I am taking are:
Install VScode
Install python3-venv
Install platformio extension
create new project → espidf-arduino-blink

Once I click create project it just gets stuck loading indefinitely (I have waited 30 minutes). My internet speed is fine. If I cancel it I can then see all the project files have been created though.

If I open the project folder it loads the platformio core then starts configuring the project “Resolving esp32dev dependencies” and it just gets stuck there. Sometimes it shows a 0% download progress.

I am running core 6.1.15 Home 3.4.4
VScode 1.89.1

Any help on getting this working again would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Just to close this out, it eventually started working.I had to allow the project to setup up for about an hour before it completed with not indication anything was happening. I probably could have used the CLI to get more insight.

I guess maybe the server connection was slow for whatever reason.
