@Rajan_Subramanian: hello, i am having issues with installing prefect 2.0 in my aws. I have a ubuntu 18.0 running which comes with a older version of sqlite3. Prefect 2.0 uses version greater than 3.24. is there anyway i can not install the sqlite3 depdency when installing prefect? @Kevin_Kho @Anna_Geller
@Kevin_Kho: You can try using
pip install --no-deps to not install dependencies and then do them manually
@Rajan_Subramanian: pip install prefect --no-deps?
[March 11th, 2022 8:41 AM] michael054: You can do
pip install --no-dependencies prefect
@Rajan_Subramanian: seems im still getting this error: Orion requires sqlite >= 3.24.0 but we found version 3.22.0
@Michael_Adkins: You won’t be able to use Prefect with the old version of SQLite since we use newer features
Unfortunately, it’s really hard to install a new version of sqlite because it’s linked into python
@Rajan_Subramanian: oh i see, so i suppose i ahve to upgrade to ubuntu 2.0
ubuntu 20 which comes shipped with newer sqlite package?
@Michael_Adkins: Yeah we test on Ubuntu 20.04
You can also try something like charles leifer | Compiling SQLite for use with Python Applications but really it’s a pain
If there was a good way to get a newer sqlite installed we’d have a tutorial on it but I haven’t found a reliable method yet
