i can not reproduce this - the current 'python' version is 3.8.2
- 'qutebrowser' installs and runs as expected

$ pacman -Ss ^python$
extra/python 3.8.2-2 [instalita]

My current python version is:

~ $ python --version
Python 3.8.3

Should I try downgrading python?

Except there's no python in my:

~ $ sudo pacman U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/python

ok based on the IRC discussion, i have a clue what the problem is - you apparently migrated from arch to parabola only since yesterday; and you have the arch python package installed - that was upgraded yesterday - that upgraded package may not propagate to all parabola mirrors until tomorrow

if you need to use qutebrowser today, you could downgrade python or rebuild qutebrowser

in any case, python-3.8.3 is in some of the repos now; so qutebrowser needs to be rebuilt

'qutebrowser' v1.11.1 fixes this

ARM still needs rebuilding

python 3.8.3 is in i686/testing

Just mentioning here that the update fixed it for me. I have qutebrowser working now. Thank you!
