I managed to update the library but getting error "Error Downloading http://downloads.arduino.cc/packages/packages_index.json" when updating the Board Manager. I switched the proxy to no proxy instead of automatic. Anyone can help me?

  • use your computer web browser to see if the URL is valid – jsotola Apr 8 '19 at 1:00

The URL is wrong, and should read:


Note that "package_index" is in the singular, not the plural.

Check what you have in the "Additional Boards Manager URLs:" section of Preferences.
