Isw python errors

I have installed isw from pacman manager.
isw -c dumps the correct stuff. However when I use other switches such as
isw -r 16U5EMS1 I get the following errors.

╰─λ sudo isw -r 16U5EMS1

There doesn't seem to be much to the package, so while it's unlikely to be fixed by rebuilding the package it's still worth trying that.

The next step is to report the issue on its issue tracker:

Just for information, isw is in the AUR so you didn't use pacman - you probably used Pamac.


Thanks for getting me back I will set an issue on github for isw. You are correct it was installed with pamac. I have been using arch (garuda) for about 5 days now. What a learning curve. I came from ubuntu and debian. There is no going back. (well so far).

The only thing that I think I need to find is a site about arch maintenance, and the dos and dont's.
