Unable to use any EE command after upgrade


#1

Hi, A couple of days ago, I did an update to EE and now I get this error on any EE commands. How do I fix this? Can you please help?

ee clean

Likely a reinstall of EE will fix this issue.

wget -qO ee rt.cx/ee && sudo bash ee

I guess you upgraded the version of Debian or Ubuntu?

I tried that too. More errors now. I think python version got messed up?

If you recently updated OS it seems like the best scenario is to update EE first and then update OS.

I was facing similar issue with Ubunto 12 to 14 upgrade, but I did this on a test server so no harm was done. I just cloned my live server to test server again and this time updated EE first and then updated Ubuntu, no issues.
