This update requires manual intervention, you must first uninstall python-flask-session and then install python-flask-session2 as these conflict with each other.

Simple way is to sudo pacman -Rdd python-flask-session, then install the latter package in your preferred way and update pyload-ng afterwards.

Fixed. As you advised, I rebuilt all my AUR python packages using 3.11 and that fixed it all. Thank you for your time & patience

If the package is built using python 3.11 and there are no files in "/usr/lib/python3.10" then I'm afraid I can't help you with this issue anymore.

Ahh. Apologies for the pyload start. Obviously not thinking clearly. The "pyload" command generates the same error as below regardless of the argument used

Also what is "pyload start"? I start using "pyload --daemon" usually, when I tried pyload start I got

usage: pyload [-h] [-d] [-r] [--storagedir STORAGEDIR] [--userdir USERDIR]
              [--tempdir TEMPDIR] [--pidfile PIDFILE] [--dry-run] [--daemon]
              [--quit] [--status] [--version]
pyload: error: unrecognized arguments: start

It seems like issue after updating your python interpreter. Make sure to rebuild all your python packages from AUR. You can check if you have any packages on older python version using pacman -Qoq /usr/lib/python3.10.

Arch Linux ARM running on a Raspberry Pi 4, fully updated

Python 3.11.3

Normally I start it as a systemd service, but using pyload start made it easier to copy the error

$ pyload start
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python3.11/importlib/metadata/", line 563, in from_name
    return next(

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

    sys.exit(load_entry_point('pyload-ng==0.5.0b3', 'console_scripts', 'pyload')())

What OS are you using and what is your python version? Could you post entire error message?

JustinSB commented on 2023-07-21 19:50 (UTC)

importlib.metadata.PackageNotFoundError: No package metadata was found for pyload-ng pyload.service: Main process exited, code=exited, status=1/FAILURE

All latest updates installed, pyload-ng crashes on load. What do I need to do to fix it please? I tried reverting python-cachelib but it made no difference.

This issue has been fixed now with python-flask-caching 2.0.2-3. There is now another one with python-flask-babel pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'pytz<2023.0,>=2022.7' distribution was not found and is required by Flask-Babel but it is fixed in latest version (3.1.0) so just need to wait for when it lands in repos.
