Unable to install plugin


Hi all,

I had installed PyCharm Community Edition 2020.1 x64 recently.

I was trying to install Intellibot plugin from the marketplace.

Clicking on 'Install' button turns itself to 'Restart IDE' in no time, and on clicking on 'Restart IDE' a pop-up appears showing 'Restart PyCharm to apply changes in plugins'. After clicking 'OK' button, PyCharm restarts.

After the restart I am unable to see the plugin under Installed.

If I look up for the same in marketplace, the same plugin is displayed with "Install" button as if it was not installed before.

I have tried Install plugin from disk option with a .jar file with the same results.

Thanks in advance.

Does it happen with all plugins? For instance, how does it go with the IdeaVim plugin?
If it works, then you should contact the plugin vendor.

I get the following pop-up when I tried to install IdeaVim plugin.

So something is blocking PyCharm from accessing the file/directory.

If you use antivirus, try disabling it. If it appears that IDE is not blocked by any external process, reinstall PyCharm into an empty directory.

There was some access issue in that device.

So I have installed in another device and it is working fine.  Thanks for your help.

On a side note, is it possible to change the location where the plugin gets installed?
