I have to say that Pythonista is an awesome program that has been a huge help to me in working on planes, etc.
Probably bad form to answer my own post, but I ended up deleting the package directories (/site/packages/urllib3 and /site/packages/requests). This let me run pip and “uninstall” the packages correctly.
Now I’m trying to get back to the original task to figure out what I need to download latest Dropbox API, resolve this dependency issue with urllib3, and get Synronator.py to run so I can backup the many python programs I’ve written in Pythonista.
If anyone has more details on these steps, I’d appreciate it.
I’m having exactly this problem and cannot even uninstall the package with pip (I keep getting the same error).
Can someone point me to the “other thread” that is mentioned in this post? Nothing in this post seems to hint at how to get rid of the offending package. Can I do it manually?
Thanks for any help.
