Tool Manager: Installing platformio/tool-scons

Hello everyone.

Could anyone please help me with this problem?
I’m opening a previously created project (folder) and I’m getting this never ending message on the OUTPUT:

Tool Manager: Looking for another mirror…

Tool Manager: Error: Please read Redirecting...

Tool Manager: Warning! Package Mirror: HTTPSConnectionPool(host=‘’, port=443): Max retries exceeded with url: /250040e607e8431abaff8727621872f9:pioregmirrorus/tools/4d/b2/9a40410de12ff3fcf960f968c08cbe29f9a47d39a1d9050b9bcdba99a0d3/tool-scons-4.40700.0.tar.gz (Caused by SSLError(SSLError(1, ‘[SSL: WRONG_VERSION_NUMBER] wrong version number (_ssl.c:1006)’)))

It keeps looping over and over again.

Thank you.

I’m getting the exact same thing as well, so this might not be a problem on your end.

CC @ivankravets, three people have this problem now at least.

When I directly click on the URL indicated by the log

it downlodas it just fine for me. It may have something to do with the Python side of things.

It actually fixed by it self after restarting several times the Visual Studio Code… I did nothing different, just that. :confused:

The problem is linked to our portable Python for macOS ARM. We are working on the fix. Thanks for your patience.

When I click on it, I get a “malware and phishing” error. It seems to be a site-wide issue for me, and not just that file.

The issue has been fixed and a new portable Python package for macOS Arm has been published to the registry. Please close the VSCode and remove the following folders:

  • ~/.platformio/.cache
  • ~/.platformio/python3
  • ~/.platformio/penv

Start VSCode. Does it work now?
