Hi @AEMnewbie ,

 

IntelliJ vault plugin is not working with IJ 2020 versions. Refer [1] for issue details.

 

Meanwhile you could see if you want to downgrade to 2019.3 to make it work temporarily or the recommendation would be to switch to the repo tool [2].

Try using lower version of IntelliJ, or use the 3.1.16 version of the filevault to pull code from crx.
I am currently using ths combination of IntelliJ 2018.3.4 and vault-cli-3.1.6.
It works absolutely great with AEM 6.5.5 and archetype 22.
