Was Paho ever included in the default pyenv environment installed by PlatformIO o_O? Try checking whether you can still access the pip3 executable for PlatformIO and instruct it to install that library. (Zephyr Blink example build fails after new install)

I’ve also wondered about why that change was made, see PlatformIO IDE for VSCode 2.0 🚀
