PlatformIO Atom/VSCode penv error Fedora 29

Hi there.

I have been using PlatformIO no problems with Atom until one day I launch Atom, the “install” dialog comes up for PlatformIO like it’s doing an update or something, until this error materialises:


I tried removing platformIO from Atom, deleting the .platformio directory from /home and reinstalling via Atom, but this doesn’t help. I get the exact same error when I try to install for VSCode, so clearly this is some sort of system wide issue, perhaps with python configuration, I’m not sure.

Any help is much appreciated.


It seems that you broke your Python installation. See errors from Python interpreter.
