Hi @romajain thanks for reporting this issue. Could you please provide more details, such as a code snippet of the lines where it fails, or other packages you’ve installed? Is there any reason you’re using wandb v0.9.7? It would be recommended that you upgrade to the most recent (currently 0.13.9) as it includes many bug fixes and features since then. You can upgrade with pip install --upgrade wandb.

Hi @romajain just checking in here to see if that issue still occurs for you or if you’ve upgraded to a newer version? could you please provide any additional information to help us understand what’s causing this issue? thanks!
