Python Utils module is missing

asked 2016-01-04 14:57:58 +0000

I use docker-compose to run a set of Docker containers. This app requires a Python module which I can't find in Fedora's repositories. See the error message from the app:

File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/requests/__init__.py", line 58, in <module>    
    from . import utils 
ImportError: cannot import name utils

To make it work, I have to use pip to install the module, but it's not desirable, because then I can't use the Fedora's update mechanism.

Question: Does the package exists with a different name? This there a way to vote for this package to be inclided in the Fedora repositories?

The syntax "from . means from here - the requests module is attempting to load resources it provides from a relative path. docker-compose is only attempting to use the requests module. I see this too:

requests]$ grep -r "from . import utils" ./
./__init__.py:from . import utils

And I do have that file:

requests]$ rpm -qf /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/requests/utils.py

It would appear that your installation of python-requests is broken, try reinstalling the package.
