VPS giving error "apt_pkg"

Posted July 12, 2020 384 views
Ubuntu 18.04

I get this error every time I try and upgrade python2 to python3. I am using this VPS to host a discord bot and I have tried quite a few things to try and resolve this issue including:

Fresh install of Ubuntu
Reinstalling python
Reinstalling the apt_pkg package.

Any help would be very appreciated!

Hi @OilBaron,

Can you please provide the exact error? Usually, this error is related to missing a module and it’s fixable based on that output.

Additionally, please let us know how exactly did you reinstall python and the apt_pkg packages. Maybe something was left during the installation process.
