NodeRed in Home Assistant no longer can install pallets or update, seems to be offline. npm ERR! network 'proxy' config is set properly

I have Node Red Plugin v14 (or 3.0.2) installed in Home Assistant (Home Assistant 2022.12.8 Supervisor 2022.12.1 Operating System 9.4 Frontend 20221213.1 - latest on a pi400). I first noticed when my telegram pallet stopped sending or receiving messages that something was amiss. I seem also no longer be able to update any pallets, for example:

I tried, to reinstall the node red plugin in Home Assistant but that did not do the trick. Automations still work. thanks for any help

You may need to ask on the HA forum. Most of us don't use it and it installs node-red in some inscrutable fashion it seems.

I think you are right. I just did. thanks

That suggests it may be an IPV4/IPV6 issue. Do let us know when you find the solution, in case others report similar issues.
