ubuntu – python – ImportError: cannot import name urandom

If you are on ubuntu and you get this bug, this might be because the python that you were using in a virtualenv was updated. ubuntu and some other distros may do this automatically.

You can verify that this occurred by looking at the:


or log in the equivalent location on your system.

The quick fix is to just re-run virtualenv.

In my case this was as simple as:

$ virtualenv .

I hope this helps some people out there.
