i was able to fix that when i saw it yesterday by running
pip3 install setuptools==40.0.0
, which i didn't try to push a fix for because i thought it was isolated to the environment i was in, and it was running pants from source -- could you let me know if that does anything?

could you let me know what the output is if you run:
Copy code

how old is your
pants
script?
you should likely recreate it using https://www.pantsbuild.org/install.html#recommended-installation if you haven't updated it in a while
but also, i would not suggest using
dev
versions in general. would stick to either
rcs
or final versions.

My script is the updated 🙂 . Also we run the
1.15.0
version. It's just I tracked the issue back to the
1.15.0.dev0
version

Hi @flaky-photographer-75744, one potential thing to try. Can you please add to your
pants.ini
under the section
GLOBAL
the entry
pants_runtime_python_version: 2.7
? This is a deprecated option that will tell Pants to run the tool with Python 2.7 (different than what is used to run your actual code / tests). Right now, it looks like it’s using Python 3.6.

It works indeed ! Thank you

05/31/2019, 3:59 PM
Yay! Although it should be working with Py36 too. I’ll investigate.
Hm I think I found the issue. https://doc.dataiku.com/dss/latest/code-envs/troubleshooting.html#creation-of-code-environments-fails-with-no-module-named-distutils-spawn @flaky-photographer-75744 could you please try out
apt-get install python3-distutils
, remove the
pants_runtime_python_version
line, and try to run
./pants
? No worries if you can’t install things like that in your environment.

The error stays still
I must admit I played with my python distributions to try fixing this problem though. Maybe there is some issuesthere.
Last but not least, recently I had to use the
Copy code
[python-setup]
interpreter_constraints: ["CPython==2.7.*,<3"]
option to fix the compile goal which results in the following error otherwise:
Copy code
10:47:10 00:01     [conan-prep]**** Failed to install setuptools-40.4.3 (caused by: NonZeroExit("received exit code 1 during execution of `['/usr/bin/python3.6', '-', 'bdist_egg', '--dist-dir=/tmp/tmpLsVFAN']` while trying to execute `['/usr/bin/python3.6', '-', 'bdist_egg', '--dist-dir=/tmp/tmpLsVFAN']`",)
):
stdout:

    import distutils.core
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'distutils.core'
So the two problems may be related. I can't refer to the previous discussion I had on this slack (messages are now hidden)
@hundreds-father-404 any new insights about this issue ?

How did you play with your python distributions?
f

flaky-photographer-75744

06/11/2019, 2:19 PM
what do you mean ? The only "weird" thing I see with my python distribution is that I have python3.6 and python3.7 both on my computer

Hey @flaky-photographer-75744, I’ve been researching this more and from everything I can tell, your installed Python doesn’t have
distutils
installed, which is what’s causing this error. Everyone recommends fixing it via
apt-get install python3-distutils
. I know that didn’t work last time - I’m wondering what was the output when you ran
apt-get install python3-distutils
? Could you also try this for me please?
python3.6 -c 'import distutils'
and the same with
python3.7
f

I found something
I can import distutils both from python3.6 and python3.7. However when running
virtualenv venv --python=python3.6
i run into File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/virtualenv.py", line 25, in <module> import distutils.spawn ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'distutils.spawn' and not when running
virtualenv venv --python=python3.7
So I managed to make things work at the end uninstalling virtualenv (both from pip and apt) and reinstalling. An apt autoremove might have also helped. Sorry for the disagreement ! And thanks a lot for your wonderful support

Yay! That’s great to hear! You’re welcome, glad this got resolved as running Pants with Python 3 is much faster and we are very soon going to remove support for running it with python 2
