In this regard, we have noticed the ModuleNotFoundError: No Module Named DotEnv error to be among the most common ones while setting up AutoGPT. If you are also getting bugged by this issue, then this guide will make you aware of a couple of handy workarounds to rectify this issue. Follow along.
Fix AutoGPT ModuleNotFoundError: No Module Named DotEnv
It is recommended that you try out each of the below-mentioned workarounds and then see which one spells out success. So with that in mind, let’s get started.
FIX 1: Remove Multiple Python Instances from Environmental Variables
One of the most plausible reasons behind this issue is the fact that you have two different versions of Python installed and both of them have been added to the Environmental Variables. So you’ll have to remove multiple instances of Python from the environmental variables [and keep only one] and the issue should then be rectified. Here’s how it could be done:
- Search env and open “Edit the System Environment variables”.
- Then click on the Environmental Variables button.
- Now select Path under System variables and click Edit.
- Then leave one instance of Python and remove all the other ones.
- Once done, hit OK and restart your PC. This should fix the issue.
FIX 2: Install DotEnv Module
In some instances, it might be the case that the DotEnv module is infact missing from the module repository. The best way to find it out is to use the below command to reinstall it. If it is indeed missing, then it will be re-added or else it will notify you that the module is already added.
