I can't manage to figure out why I can't download any plugins. I have an Internet connection, but it seems like QGIS can't access the online repository of plugins.

As an example, I'd like to download the OpenStreetMaps plugin. When I type anything into the search bar (even a single letter), no hits come back. Any ideas about what to do here?

Also, the version I am using is 3.10.10 - A Coruña. Using 64 bit on Mac OS.

Search bar of plugin menu


Issue has been solved by updating my mac OS as QGIS only supports OS above 10.13 (High Sierra I believe?)

  • I just asked a related question here: gis.stackexchange.com/questions/341486/…. While you don’t seem to have any plugins, I at least have a handful of them. But none that are created with Python. So for me I believe it’s a Python issue. Not sure if that’s of any help for you... – Kristen G. Nov 12 '19 at 13:27
  • I just solved my problem by upgrading my Mac OS from Sierra 10.12 to Mojave 10.14. The latest QGIS download requires a minimum of High Sierra 10.13 qgis.org/en/site/forusers/download.html. What Mac OS are you using? Could this be your problem? – Kristen G. Nov 12 '19 at 21:42

    @KristenG. I also just discovered that this was the issue and will be updating my question accordingly! – Brenda Thompson Nov 13 '19 at 1:17
