Hi Kranthi, thank you for writing in! Can you tell me more about what you are running when this error appears? For example, does this appear with just wandb.init()?

Hi Kranthi, since we have not heard back from you we are going to close this request. If you would like to re-open the conversation, please let us know!

I am also experiencing this issue when i run sweep agent. The weird thing is that I can run it on my local machine. But I got this issue when I try to run it on remote linux machine. No idea about reason.

I am also having this issue since weeks and I can’t solve it. It is really annoying.
