  • Hi,

    This could potentially be an issue with your Python lockfile, or the location of your Python installation being different than where you are attempting to install the Apache Utils.

    Which version of Ubuntu are you using, and have you recently run apt-get update and apt-get upgrade?

    Additionally, can you send the output of which python ?
    Thanks,
    Brook
