Impossible to install mycroft_skills_sdk


Hi there!
Waiting for my Mark 1 to arrive, I have installed mycroft on my Ubuntu 16.04 and am playing a bit with it. I am also trying to create a new skill for it by following mycroft doc. However when I try to install the Mycroft skills framework with pip, I execute this command:
pip install mycroft_skills_sdk --extra-index-url= --trusted-host

and get this error message:
RetryError: HTTPSConnectionPool(host='', port=443): Max retries exceeded with url: /mycroft-skills-sdk/ (Caused by ResponseError('too many 503 error responses',))

And indeed, if I try to go on the webpage, I get a 503. Any idea on how I can get the sdk to install?


Hello @Korydween The pip install is currently not updated. If you would like to use the skill container debugging tool, which will isolate the debugging message to just that skill alone.

on Mark 1 or Picroft in the command line do
mycroft-skill-container /path/to/skill

on Desktop, cd to mycroft-core root directory and in the command line do
./ skill_container /path/to/skill

Hope that helps!


Thanks for the answer. I haven’t got time to try again recently but I will. Now I also received my Mark 1, so I am even more motivated to play with it :smiley:
