Can't search in "Install Packages"

In the “Install Packages” section of the Settings page, I suddenly find myself unable to search for packages. No matter what I input into the search box, I get results like this:

Search works correctly on the Packages page.

I am using Atom 1.49.0 on macOS 10.15.5.

I am not behind a proxy and have successfully searched in the past.

Yes Same here, It doesn’t even work on Windows 10 .
And I can’t even install packages from the web atom.io/packages .
I thought that this website would open atom and install it but it shows error 500

Hi, I’m having the same problem here.
I’m using Windows 10 and just installed Atom today.
About half an hour ago I was able to install another package.
I can’t install packages from the web https://atom.io/packages either.

I just got mine working a minute ago by using apm to uninstall and then reinstall a package. I picked a package at random for this experiment:

$ apm uninstall pipe
Uninstalling pipe ✓

$ apm install pipe
Installing pipe to /Users/wolfy/.atom/packages ✓

The package search now seems to be working.

Search broke for me after upgrading my mac to Catalina (10.15). Confirming this worked for me too: uninstalling and reinstalling a package fixed the whole search! Thanks for the fix!
