Error message on Anki

I am trying to download the Ankihub add on to my Anki but every time I try to open it I get an Error message. I have deleted all my add- ons to see if that would help and also have done Tools- Check Database but the error message keeps coming back. Attaching the message down below, please help:

An error occurred. Please use Tools > Check Database to see if that fixes the problem.

Please close Anki, then start it again while holding down the shift key, which will disable any add-ons you have installed.

Then try to remove/install/update the add-on.

Yes I tried the shift option while opening and then also deleted all my add ons as well and it didn’t work.
Have tried restarting my computer but the error message keeps popping up regardless

Maybe close Anki, then use Finder to go to ‘‘/Users/…/Library/Application Support/Anki2/addons21/’ and try to remove the ‘1322529746’ folder. Then open Anki and try to install the add-on.
