Bug report #16445

'cannot import name _thread' in QGIS 2.14.13 for Metasearch Catalogue Client

Added by Steve Lowman about 7 years ago. Updated over 6 years ago.

Assignee:Tom Kralidis
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.
Thank you.

#1 Updated by Tom Kralidis about 7 years ago

I'm unable to reproduce the issue. Is anyone else able to reproduce?

#2 Updated by Steve Lowman about 7 years ago

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?

#3 Updated by Steve Lowman about 7 years ago

For me this issue looks to have been resolved by installing 2.14.14.
