Why did Mark Knopfler not attend the induction of Dire Straits into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?

Ironically, Mark Knopfler even didn’t attend “The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame” but attended Scottish Music Award.
A lot less prestigious award. I don’t think it’s exactly for music but because it was near his hometown.
Knopfler when disbanded Dire Straits had said,
“It just got too big. If anyone can tell me one good thing about fame, I’d be very interested to hear it”
Was it just a drama? I don’t know what goes on in this man’s mind. But it’s probably that he wants to separate himself from mainstream music. Becoming the original “Sultans of Swing” he intended to create. A band playing music, not for fame but to just “chill out”.
