Ubuntu – Chrome Webstore is broken (Image Decode failed)


my webstore in Chrome is broken.
I already purged chrome and reinstalled it but nothing new.

It says image decode failed, when I want to install new extensions.
ALso every picture is broken.
I have a dual boot and no problem with Chrome under Windows.

Under Linux I can not install any extensions with and without sync with my Account.
I also used the incognito mode but it still won't work.

Do you have any advice?

Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS
Everything else is up to date.

Edit: edited. Found the solution.

Here was my problem:

It was because some google content was blocked in my hosts.

You can check if it is the same for you.
