'urllib3' Module not found when import 'requests'
#1
Hello guys :)
I'm using python 3.9 on linux(ParrotOS).
While practicing python, I installed and imported 'requests' module.
When I'm trying to use it, I get this error msg:

Error:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "/home/osboxes/Desktop/Python/code.py", line 1, in <module> import requests File "/usr/lib/python3.9/requests/__init__.py", line 43, in <module> import urllib3 ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'urllib3'
I tried to pip3 install this 'urllib3' but it is already installed..
Quote:pip3 install urllib3
Requirement already satisfied: urllib3 in /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages (1.25.11)

I will appreciate some help here,
Thanks!

You should not have a requests folder under root python 3.9.
Rename or remove it as when import requests it will try to read from it.
If you do pip show requests so should the last destination folder always be site-packages or dist-packages (a Debian-specific convention).

Thanks for the reply.
I renamed the folder, and now the error is:
Error:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "/home/osboxes/PycharmProjects/pythonProject/main.py", line 1, in <module> import requests ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'requests'
when I try to install it, it is already installed:
Quote:$pip3 install requests
Requirement already satisfied: requests in /usr/local/lib/python3.9/dist-packages (2.25.1)

As you use Pycharm look at Configure a Python interpreter and point it to /usr/local/lib/python3.9.
Also teste from command like type python or python3 and see that Python 3.9 interactive mode start and see that import work there.

/usr/local/lib/python3.9 is a folder, I couldnt set it as an interpreter.
And there is nothing in this folder but 'dist-packages' folder.

Looking at link i,so most point to the binary when choose target interpreter then is /usr/local/lib/python3.9/python
I do not use PyCharm myself.
