sdwdate broken - Python issue? - ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'requests.exceptions'

I am on the latest Whonix Virtualbox, sdwdate does not work.

It is always failing with error

from .exceptions import RequestsDependencyWarning
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'requests.exceptions'

I can confirm I have latest python requests installed.

I solved my own problem, an incompatible version of requests was installed by something else. For anyone else with this issue, you need to uninstall the older version and install the system requests.

sudo pip3 uninstall requests
sudo apt-get install --reinstall python3-requests

Hello and thank you for reporting this solution.
I have to uninstall and reinstall python3-requests but also python3-urllib3 and python3-chardet …

But now I’m facing another issue. For each remote I have a message :
ERROR: stderr excessive string length: 618

Log extract :

remote 0: xxxxxxxx

Thank you in advance for your help !

If you create FrankenDebian (DontBreakDebian - Debian Wiki) it is highly unlikely that anyone will/can help.

These aren’t issues with sdwdate but generally breaking dependencies. Such issues are unspecific to Whonix and sdwdate.
