twitch error on trying to get channels

Post by elmarts »

I've installed the gnome twitch app from the software repository (0.4.1-2ubuntu0.18.04.1). Logged in OK, etc., but the program fails to get my channels with the following error:
Unable to fetch all followed channels because: Unable to read JSON member with name '_total' because: The member “_total” is not defined in the object at the current position.
Any idea why this could be? And better yet, how to fix it?

I have the same error on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.
The software was last updated 31st August 2016
Therefore, I believe it is abandon-ware and no longer supported. The error may never be fixed. Hopefully the official Twitch developers release a version for Linux.
