Glad it's working now.

That PR fixed it for me. I just copied the changed files over the current installation. I'll leave a comment over there and let them know.

I don't think there is a real fix yet.
The only think I can recommend is loging in to and deleting any empty conversation events, which seems to the the root cause of the issue.
You may also wish to try using [PR#306](, which is an attempt to fix the problem.

No. I also tried rebuilding/reinstalling python-aiohttp and python-multidict, since those have been a problem in the past. Removing ~/.config/hangups didn't help either. It crashes with the same error before even getting to the account setup phase.

Does re-installing python-yarl solve the issue?

Thanks for the fix, but now I am running into (I'm seeing the exact same error message). If anyone has a workaround, let us know. This is my favorite gchat client, I wish it wasn't so prone to breakage...

Thanks, added.

This needs makedepends=('git')

Fixed the package.
This is an upstream problem, since upstream uses very strict versioned dependencies. There was an attempt to mitigate this problem here:
but no satisfactory result came of it. So for now I'll just keep juggling the dependencies manually.

Package is broken after python-aiohttp update to 1.3.1:

File "/usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/pkg_resources/", line 854, in resolve
raise DistributionNotFound(req, requirers)
pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'aiohttp<1.3,>=1.2' distribution was not found and is required by hangups

Not sure if this is an upstream issue, I can report there if so.
