Hey there @thapasanjay35,

If you run python --version, does it give you a 2.x version number?

If so, does running python3 --version give you a valid 3.x version?

If it does, you should be able to run your django project with python3 instead of python.

Hope that helps!

Your answer does not really help. I do not understand why i have a python 2.7 version for a first creation in 2020 and i do not know how to change the version.
