This is what it shows:

puddletag Version: 2.3.0

any help appreciated.

The issue is actually with the python-pyparsing package.

See here (puddletag github):

And here (pyparsing github):

The simplest solution is to wait until the python-pyparsing package gets updated.

You could try downgrading python-pyparsing to version 3.1.1.


Thank You for the information. I now know I have a couple options. Think I will wait for now.
