For whoever will have this problem in the future:
I fixed it like so:

  • Uninstall asyncio package via the Replit window
  • In replit files, click on the 3 dots and "Show Hidden files"
  • Go to /venv/lib/pythonX.X/site-packages
  • Delete the asyncio( NOT THE ASYNC!) files

It worked for me after i tried to install asyncio package and totally messed up my projet, hope it helped
