I'm hoping this is a simple problem. I'm trying to visualise the raster layer I have loaded in PostGIS, using QGIS. I've seen other people simply open the QGIS DB Manager and drag the raster layer into the QGIS layers panel. But when I try that I get the following error appearing saying Raster layer cannot instantiate the postgresraster data provider.

enter image description here

I see someone else had the same problem at Raster grid on PostGIS not able to add to QGIS but the only comment was:

Your version of QGIS isn't compiled for PGRaster surport

which I don't know how to interpret or fix and neither did the original question asker.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

The only solution I found to the problem was completely re-install QGIS.
