    Please, what is the version of your Ubuntu? Did you use the same version as I did? I see you are saying 14.04 - but the picture looks different from what I used.

        then use this :
        $sudo add-apt-repository ppa:deadsnakes/ppa
        $ sudo apt update
        $ sudo apt install python3.6

          M. Namvar does it work now? I could try it, but I tried it couple of months ago and it was working. Maybe something has changed - if you can't figure out what the problem is, I will try to install it on my computer.

            robertferanec Hi
            I can not run Repo init because of the Python version and HTTPS SSL error.
            I tried and tried to install the SSL package. no luck!
            then I upgraded ubuntu to 14.04.7.
            SSL problem solved but installing Python became my new problem.
            after all the above methods worked.

              if you are behind a proxy server, like me, the repo sync may fail. So use these commands to solve it.

              Setting the proxy for Git
              1. Open a command prompt
              2. Run the following commands replacing USERNAME, PASSWORD, PROXY_ADDRESS, and PROXY_PORT with your network's information:
                1. git config --global --add http.proxy http://USERNAME:[email protected]_ADDRESS:PROXY_PORT
                2. git config --global --add https.proxy http://USERNAME:[email protected]_ADDRESS:PROXY_PORT
              3. Run the following commands to prevent SSH problems:
                1. git config --global url."https://".insteadOf git://
                2. git config --global url."".insteadOf [email protected]: (don't remove the final colon)
              4. If your computer is within a corporate network that uses personal network drives, ensure identical copies of your .gitconfig file exist on both the network drive and your local drive's user profile (e.g. F:\ and C:\Users\USERNAME).

                    I had a look into the git:

                    Maybe try:

                    Please let me know if that helped. Thank you

                      I face this problem when executing the repo sync command.
                      Do you mean to install poky manually?

                    I will try to build it when I am at home.

                    PS: Maybe have a look into the manifest file and update link to poky?

                      I just tested it. Only what I had to do was update to python 3.6 ( exactly as you described in ) and then it just worked:

                      I have not seen any problems with HTTPS and anything else what you were describing in the other posts. After I installed python 3.6, it just worked.

                      Maybe it is something with your Ubuntu installation? Did you try to download the Ubuntu which I created? The link is under the lesson video in Links & Download TAB.

                        hi, I checked. my default python version is 2.7. I will try to change it to 3.6

                      Do not ask me about Yocto, but python 2.x and 3.x are not compatible to each other!

                        "Do not use Bitbake as root.", any ideas?
