[SOLVED] ImportError: No module named 'mycroft'


#1

Might be a simple answer, but I can’t find it and the similar topics don’t fix it.

The update last week broke my little PiCroft (pi 3) that has run for a year.

(.venv) pi@picroft:~ $ mycroft-cli-client
/home/pi/mycroft-core/.venv/bin/python: Error while finding spec for ‘mycroft.client.text’ (<class ‘ImportError’>: No module named ‘mycroft’)

(.venv) pi@picroft:~ $ mycroft-speak hello
/home/pi/mycroft-core/.venv/bin/python: Error while finding spec for ‘mycroft.messagebus.send’ (<class ‘ImportError’>: No module named ‘mycroft’)

(.venv) pi@picroft:~ $ mycroft-say-to “what time is it”
/home/pi/mycroft-core/.venv/bin/python: Error while finding spec for ‘mycroft.messagebus.send’ (<class ‘ImportError’>: No module named ‘mycroft’)


#2

Hi there @riddle - so that we can help diagnose this, are you able to provide your;

  • Picroft hardware - ie 3B or 3B+?
  • Version of Mycroft you’re running - ie 18.8.2
  • Whether you installed from a Git repo, or burnt a disk image

This will help us with the starting points of debugging.


#3

Hi,

  • It is on a pi-3B.
  • Trying to run latest (update.log only logged 18.8) (the version file says “Lighting preview”).
    The update.sh was last run that installed packages on Oct. 5.
  • the SD image was burnt from the 2/12/2017 image.

#4

OK, a few things to try here.

  • First, from the command line, run an update by doing sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade. This will pull in any mycroft-core code changes.
  • Then, it’s worth rebooting the RPi just for good measure. The reboot will also force a Skill update, but this error is not related to Skills.

Can you let me know how you go after this?


#5

Thanks,
I should have reported that the favorite thing to run every few days is:
sudo apt-get -y update && sudo apt-get -y upgrade && sudo apt-get -y dist-upgrade && sudo apt-get autoremove && sudo reboot

Did it again, just for you :slight_smile:
No change.
Speak and Say-to are still not working with the same ImportError.

BTW - “mycroft-msm list” runs ok

Might be important… most of the logs in /var/log/mycroft contain:

#6

Does the above say that,
Venvs has requests 2.13.0 and mycroft-core requires 2.19.1 ?


#7

Thanks @riddle, yes this looks like it may be a package dependency issue. The other thing I noticed was that your image was from February 2017 - we’ve had three major releases since then so it may also be an option to install from a fresh disk image.

Using some pip commands, I’d like to see what you have installed.

Are you able to enter the virtual environment and run:

  • pip list
    and
  • pip list --outdated

and let me know what you see?


#8

Thanks, I am away all weekend and will re-image next week.
There is other stuff on that Pi that I did not want to distroy, so was trusting updater.


#9

Fixed. Newest image updated and works.
This ticket can be closed


#10

Thanks for confirming, @riddle
