After another round of issues due to updates and broken functionality, I uninstalled flexget and all of its depends using pacman. I kept setuptools installed, and installed python2-virutalenv and python2-pip. I followed the instructions on the flexget page for setting up a virtualenv for ONLY flexget using python2 (python3 seems to have issues at this time). This seems to be working well and running OK. This process creates a build of flexget and its depends (independent of Arch) in a local folder somewhere, so it can be executed but will never interfere with Arch packages. I don't ever plan on updating the virtualenv or the packages/depends installed inside of that folder. Hopefully I can now use flexget in peace, without it breaking in an attempt to give me feature updates I don't need and won't use.

@cgirard - thank you, that fixed it!

file path if anyone else needs it:


cgirard commented on 2018-04-23 13:40

@highway: it is because zxcvbn-python is now zxcvbn. The python require file should be updated.

I seem to have an issue with the latest update of python2-zxcvbn breaking functionality. The error I receive is: "pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'zxcvbn-python' distribution was not found and is required by FlexGet"

Is anyone else experiencing this?

I meant the same as highway*

@cgirard I'm getting the same as cgirard, which is (as far as i can see) the same one you linked for python2 (the issue you linked happens on python3). I debugged the issue and tracked it down to sqlalchemy, an going through my updates logs I realized it got updated to 1.2 not long ago; when downgraded it, worked like a charm.

@asermax, thanks for the tip, i will downgrade to the older version as a temp fix!

@cgirard, it looks like the sqlalchemy issue we are seeing is different than the one reported. if you need more from me, let me know!

@highway @asermax: what error are you getting? Is it the same as this: ?

asermax commented on 2018-01-16 13:44

@highway yeah, it has something to do with the latest update on sqlalchemy. Currently flexget supports up to 1.1.x, so I'm not sure how to definitely fix it, but for now I downgraded to the latest 1.1.x version of sqlalchemy on arch and pinned it down on pacman.conf to avoid updating.
