You should not accept this update offer for the time being.

Therefore, such components no longer appear in the Home Assistant system and can no longer be controlled. Piling up on the add-on’s Github page corresponding messages.

Problemfall MQTT-Broker 6.0.1

At the moment, the only remedy is to go back to the previous version. You can access the restore function in Supervisor-Menu under data backup. There you double click on the old one Version 5.1.1 and then choose restore.

Version 5.1.1 should be brought back in order to be able to control all MQTT components again.
