Hi Team,

I am trying to install ERPNext on AWS instance…

While running bench init erpnext && cd erpnext giving some output like bench.utils.CommandFailedError: virtualenv -q env -p /usr/bin/python3

bench@ip-172-31-39-157:~$ bench init erpnext && cd erpnext

How to solve this…


#2

you need to install python3 and setuptools


#3

@ical, please update how to install .


#4

I have the same error when doing bench migrate-env python3 and I already have python3 installed and setuptools


#5

@Iulian_Olaru just try with python2.7 install


#6

Yep, using that at this moment but with the warnings on each update about deprecation etc… not sure if there is any urgency to use python3


#7

@Iulian_Olaru yes for python 2.7 support will be stopped. Warning msg will be shown as notification.


#8

Hence this brings up the subject, how do you eventually migrate to python3 ? I see on the forum almost nobody was able to do it.


#9

yes migrate to python 3 is not having a solution.You just create a new issue in forum,so you will get more replies for that issue.


#10

if you are using ubuntu, then follow this guide


#11

@ical ok thank yu…let me try.
