Adding Music to Library & Metadata improver: Paused

Description of Issue

The adding music to library function runs continuously (see screenshot). How do I fix this?

And, the Metadata improver has been “paused” How do I fix this?


Is this local music from a hard drive or a streaming service library?

Exact same issue here.

I’m having the same issue, plus I can’t log into my account on Roon’s website (although obviously I have no trouble logging in here).

Same here.

I suspect Root’s cloud services have a problem, nothing we can do locally other than to report to Roon (which this topic will do).

Yep Its literally just gone belly up for myself in the last few minutes…actually explains a lot of other stuff I was starting to see.

Looks like it’s working again.

I’m having the same problem here, it seems to be something systemic.

Any predictions for a solution?

I stuck since days with the following message. I rebooted the nucleus several times, sometimes this message disappears, but it comes back every time.

Hello All,

Thank you for the reports! Can you please confirm if there has been any change in behavior since the weekend or is the issue still ongoing?
