What does Repl.it: Package operation failed mean?
Csilarion (21)

When ever I run my program I get this error message:
Repl.it: Package operation failed.
Why am I getting it and what does it mean?

The package installation is failing because the package you are trying to install isn't supported by repl.it.

If this was helpful, please mark is as the answer.

@aeronaman Are you using python 3? Python 2 packages don't work very well on repl.it
