Cannot check for available updates

I’m unable to check for available updates in the desktop app:

To Reproduce

Steps to reproduce the behavior:

    1. Click on Anytype in Menubar
    1. Click on “Check for Updates”


  • OS: macOS 11.4
  • Device 13in MacBook Pro 2019 (i7)
  • Version: 0.18.15

@theproducer I am not certain but I think this is network-related (possibly DNS).

  • What other devices do you use Anytype on and are they on the same network?
  • Are you able to check for updates and use Anytype normally on other device(s)?
  • Sorry if this is an obvious question, but have you checked to make sure Anytype has network access outside of your local network on the Mac?

@theproducer, @Oshyan is right, you maybe had a problem with your internet connection. Do you have this problem now?

Hello! Sorry for the delayed response.

At the same time that the problem happened, I completed setting up a new home network based around the UDM Pro:

I had some network malware / content filters enabled, and that seemed to block wherever Anytype was reaching out to for updates.

I can’t give you any details about what exactly was blocked since the UDM settings for content filters were pretty opaque, so I don’t know what it was doing exactly.
