ImportError: cannot import name SSLError

Postby drpaneas » Sat Jan 04, 2014 10:24 pm

I need the SSLError utility function but ...

Code: Select all
from requests.exceptions import SSLError


and I get ImportError: cannot import name SSLError :(

PS: I have installed python-requests in Ubuntu using the python-requests package

I am using Python 2.7.3
is this module available for Python 2.x or I have to use Python 3.x instead ?

PS: Yes, openssl and libssl-dev are already installed

I am using Python 2.7.3.
However,
Code: Select all
from requests import exceptions

works without problem.

My professor told me to use SSLError, I don't know if ssl and SSLError are similar. Hm ?


If it helps:
Code: Select all
requests.__version__

is 0.8.2

and the
Code: Select all
request.exceptions.__file__

is /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/requests/exceptions.pyc

--------------------------------------------------- EDIT ---------------------------------------------------
Answer: My requests library version is too old. The SSLError exception was not added to requests.exceptions until version 0.8.8, in revision 9a1a413.
