Google music doesn't work - how to troubleshoot

I have added my google music account details and the device-id of my android smartphone in the settings. When I try to search anything from google music, it just shows “loading data from MusicBox. Please wait…”. I use the current Pi MusicBox 0.6.0 image on a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B. What possible ways of troubleshooting this error are there?

Thanks in Advance

I must admit I have absolutely no idea what the current state of gmusic is in musicbox 0.6 since I don’t personally use it. We are still using a really old version which I think some people were complaining had issues. I will try and check it when I can but in the meantime you could have a look for any errors in /var/log/mopidy/mopidy.log.

So you have deviceid=your android device id
in your mopidy.conf file?
Try commenting that out: I just had a similar problem and that seemed to fix it.
Google Music seemed to connect but when I tried to actually play anything I got errors:

Commenting out the deviceid entry made it work.
