Solution 1:  Installing the missing python package –

Whenever you get such errors, check for the underline package. Try to install the same either by –

  • pip package manager
  • Conda Package Manager
  • Source code build
  • easy_install

There are many other ways which also install any python package but the above four are the easiest and most possible ways. In fact, I will suggest pip as the first priority for this.


Solution 2: Path configuration –

This is a less common scenario than the above one. Here we have the python package which is throwing the importerror and modulenotfound error. But either the path is not properly set or in the script we are doing the wrong relative import.  The best suggestion here is –

  • Using absolute path while importing 
  • Adding project root directory to python path 

Importerror attempted relative import with no known parent package
