New problem with chroma fingerprint matching

Good day. I’ve suddenly got an odd problem. I’ve been using beets for about a year with pretty much no issues once I figured out how to really use it. I am running Ubuntu 20.04 with a Docker container using the linuxserver/beets image. I think it was on Friday that I started getting this error when importing:

chroma: fingerprint matching b’/downloads/A/Benedictine Monks/Benedictine Monks Of Santo Domingo De Silos - - 00 - .mp3’ failed: response is not valid JSON

I have spent my weekend trying to figure out what could have changed. I was working on some other things and did a couple of updates so likely that’s where I screwed something up. I haven’t touched my beets configuration, however.

Here is my config.yaml:

plugins: the fetchart embedart convert scrub replaygain lastgenre chroma web discogs

art_filename: albumart

Any clue where I should be looking to sort this out?

I should have added, this is how I’m calling beets

docker exec -u abc -it beets /bin/bash -c “beet -vv import /downloads/A”

Hello! I think the Acoustid servers may be having problems. See this thread, for example:

That was it! Working perfectly today. Thank you very much for the response. I spend so much time screwing stuff up that I always figure I’ve done it yet again. :smile:
