Hi everybody,
I joined this group to learn more about web development. I am familiar with Java, C, and HTML, and am actively learning CSS and Python. I am highly interested in programming, which is why I set a goal for myself to learn Python. And I'm facing some issues! Can somebody help me?
After deploying and hosting my website, I upgraded my pip version. Then I installed the pypaystack package. When I try to push to Heroku, I get the error shown below. In the development stage, the project is running smoothly.

Collecting pypaystack==1.24

What can be the issue? I even created a new virtual environment but the error remains.
I'm hoping that this community will assist me on my path.

Hey there! I'm not sure this is going to be the best place for this type of issue, as this isn't directly related to the cPanel tools. It's always possible a developer will see this and have an idea, but we generally mean developing tools related to cPanel, such as with the API system.

Hopefully someone else will see this and share their ideas!
