Bug report #16445
'cannot import name _thread' in QGIS 2.14.13 for Metasearch Catalogue Client
|Category:||MetaSearch Catalogue Client|
|Affected QGIS version:||2.14.13||Regression?:||No|
|Operating System:||W10||Easy fix?:||No|
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:||wontfix|
|Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:||No||Copied to github as #:||24354|
After upgrading from 2.14.12 to 2.14.13, the Metasearch Catalogue Client plugin will no longer open. Instead, it is broken and invalid, with a message that says, "cannot import name _thread".
The same issue is also affecting the new 'JRectifier' georeferencing plugin, so if you find the fix, please tell Janek how to fix it, too.
Colleagues who have not upgraded their LTR version are not affected by this, so it seems to be due to the QGIS LTR version upgrade.

- File Python_Error_Log.txt added
Error Log (attached) has lines as follows:
from six.moves import _thread, range
ImportError: cannot import name _thread
so, it's a six module thing. Any advice how to fix this. I'm not finding it easy to resolve.
My W10 computer has Python 3.5, but presumably I need to do something to the QGIS Python 2.7 installation, and not yet even found a way to start up Python 2.7 with command prompt.
If anyone can help with steps to resolve this, I would appreciate it, rather than just closing it?
