I had been using the flexget daemon successfully with Transmission for years. I decided to update flexget, while also installing the latest version of python and seem to have correctly installed the latest versions of both:
After I executed alias python='python3'
IS THIS ALIAS NEEDED? IT'S NOT IN THE DIRECTIONS.
You are on the latest release.
However, now when I run flexget check here is what I get:
2017-09-28 15:31 VERBOSE check Pre-checked 80 configuration lines
Traceback (most recent call last):

I assume this means there's a problem. Even though the config.yml was untouched, I tried paring my config.yml to something really simple and get the same result. If the problem is in the Python framework it is way beyond me.
Thanks for any help.
