Fresh install of OctoPrint not starting

What is the problem?

Hello! Just setup my Raspberry Pi 3 B+ again, and had no issues with OctoPrint before, but upon doing a fresh install for OctoPrint, it refuses to start now

What did you already try to solve it?

Reinstalling, rebooting, deleting all the files related to OctoPrint and installing again, etc

Have you tried running in safe mode?


Did running in safe mode solve the problem?


Systeminfo Bundle

You can download this in OctoPrint's System Information dialog ... no bundle, no support!)

As it fails to start, I cannot provide this

Additional information about your setup

OctoPrint version, OctoPi version, printer, firmware, browser, operating system, ... as much data as possible
OctoPrint version 1.8.1, N/A, Ender 3 Pro, Marlin, N/A, RPi 3B+ running Mycroft OS

Here's what OctoPrint outputs upon attempting to run it

Hello @MarkTheSlav !

Did you follow a certain guide to install OctoPrint?

Just the manual installation instructions on the OctoPrint website at the bottom

python3.7 is now too old. You need a new version.

I think you are confusing this with Python 2.7
Python 3.7 is fine :slight_smile:

I might have been thinking of 3.6 (going from memory). I do know that in my testing with various distros in VMs there were troubles installing OctoPrint in sub-3.8 python.
