import boto3 importerror no module named boto3 ( Solution ) –
There are many ways to install the boto3 module in the system but I like the pip most. So let’s explore this first.
Solution 1 :
boto3 is a very common python module for AWS automation. It is very well distributed in wheels and another packaging with PyPI. Here is the command for installing boto3 with pip.
pip install boto3
This will install the latest version for boto3. But sometimes the underline packages required different versions of boto3. In that case, it will create an incompatibility issue. So the best practice is to add a version with the above command. Here is the syntax for that.
pip install boto3 == 1.18.5
One more important thing, You may add sudo if required. Actually, some configurations need admin rights to run any command. In those places, if we add sudo with the command. It will work. Here is an example of that.
sudo pip install boto3
Solution 2 :
The best alternative is conda package manager for boto3 sdk installation. It is also a very well popular package manager. So I am not explaining it in detail. Here is the command for that.
conda install -c anaconda boto3
You can then run the above command from Anaconda prompt.
