Rapid Miner does not start correctly

After starting Rapid Miner today, the startup process hangs showing the message "INFO: Checking for updates." in the terminal. I started the GUI using a terminal in Linux.

It is impossible to load processes and it is also impossible to create new processes, because the operators gray out. After 30 minutes the "Checking for updates" message disappears and Rapid Miner runs correctly.

This happens every time I start Rapid Miner. So far, everything ran smoothly.

There are some warnings in the terminal:

WARNING: Version file /home/marcel/.RapidMiner5/ida/version.txt does not exist.

    Marcel,

    Same problem for me though Windows 7. It was working fine yesterday. Currently waiting to see if it works correctly after a while.

    I disabled all update options in the Preferences menu. After restarting the GUI everything worked great.

    It seems to be a connectivity problem with the update servers. But it is strange that no errors or information about the update status appear in the GUI.

    I'm at that point too. Will follow suit with the updates preferences.

    Hi,

    the update server is currently having some trouble. Sadly RapidMiner Studio 5 blocks when it cannot connect to it unless you disable updates on start-up in the preferences.
    RapidMiner Studio 6 is not affected by this.

    Regards,
    Marco
