Title: Boards manager
Post by: Idahowalker on Mar 19, 2019, 09:26 pm
I've started to get this error lately with Boards manager:

Error downloading https://downloads.arduino.cc/packages/package_index.json
Any clues how I can fit it?

Could be one of many things.

Re-start your router. (based on personal experience as the routers cache was corrupted)

See if anything changed in your computers security / antivirus settings and allow the IDE through any firewalls. (common issue)

Have you recently changed the IDE in any way eg. folder re-directions etc.

Just guesses based on minimal info supplied.
