No module named 'netifaces' Error

What is the problem?

When I run 'octoprint serve' on Windows 10, python 3.8.2, I receive an error ModuleNotFoundError: No module names 'netifaces'

What did you already try to solve it?

I removed and reinstalled Python and reinstalled octoprint without error (logs avavilable)

Have you tried running in safe mode and if so did it solve the issue?

No
