That sounds like your file isn't reachable.

Can you try to open the file you configured to update from in a browser and see if you get what you expect?

Looks like HTML is being returned instead of JSON.

I have had this error myself. Some providers don't allow direct file linking and it's this "protection" feature of your server hoster that is interfering with the file transfer between your provider and clients. The text files will still be "served", but with added html tags that the updater does not recognise, so it spits out that error.

 

Use Google compute, Oracle compute or Amazon AWS and install a httpd server so you have full control over what is served.

 

I'm running several servers in Oracle and Google on their free tiers.

I tried 000webhost and awardspace and both have this protection you menction and the .json cant be checked.
Still looking for a free solution for testing or I will end up with a hostkoala service (some people say it works)
