Command "python egg_info" failed with error code 1 in /tmp/pip-build-ggqabt6z/amqplib/

Also clean install Ubuntu 20 failed. Some files have been commited/updated 5 hours ago. Might that be the reason?

Having the same problem. keep Getting this message install on Digital Ocean Ubuntu 18.04, Command “python egg_info” failed with error code 1 in /tmp/pip-build-kdrlnxom/amqplib/

I can confirm sucessfull isntallation on Ubuntu 18, I think sources where the issue.

So how did you overcome this. Im a complete newbie to all of this and need as much help as possible, if you can. Do you have a bet git clone link.
Many thanks
