Removing this and reinstalling completely from scratch worked for me!

neuronestanco this is from a Python upgrade. For a quick fix uninstall envycontrol, clean your yay cache, and reinstall.

yay -R envycontrol

rm -rf ~/.cache/yay/envycontrol

yay -Sy envycontrol

maybe this should be conlicting optimus-manager because i don't see how having both running could be good.
