Trying to built tweets on pset6 and am encountering some errors, is it due to bad installation?

What caused that error message?

Should i have not used the import functions and i

Here is my code:

#!/usr/bin/env python3

#import nltk
from helpers import get_user_timeline
from tweetanalyzer import Analyzer
import sys
import os
from termcolor import colored


#ensure proper usage
def main():
    if len(sys.argv) != 2:
        sys.exit("Usage: ./smile @username")

    # absolute paths to lists
    positives = os.path.join(sys.path[0], "positive-words.txt")
    negatives = os.path.join(sys.path[0], "negative-words.txt")

#get tweets
    screen_name = sys.argv[1]
    ##get_user_timeline (in helpers.py)
    if get_user_timeline(screen_name, count=200) is False:
        #Check if successful
        #if private account or does not exist(unsuccessful)
        #error message if unsuccessful(sys.exit)
        sys.exit("account either private or does not exist")
        #tokenize the tweet (like we did in analyzer.py for "smile")

        #tokenizers are part of natural language toolkit
        #use a TweetTokenizer to split into a list of words

    #analyze tweets
    #initialize Analyzer
    analyzer = Analyzer(positives, negatives)
    #instantiate Analyzer, iterate over every token scoring them pos,neg,neutral (this will indicate if the tweet is posistive/negative/neutral)
    score = analyzer.TweetAnalyzer(sys.argv[1])
    #tweet = analyzer.TweetAnalyzer
    if score > 0.0:
        #print score
        print(colored("{}".format(score), "green", end=''))
        #print tweet

    elif score < 0.0:
        print(colored("{}".format(score), "red", end=''))
        #print tweet

        print(colored("{}".format(score), "yellow", end=''))
        #print tweet

if __name__ == "__main__":

Below is the error in terminal:

  • The "fix" is to run pip3 install --user -r requirements.txt --upgrade. Notice the upgrade switch. – DinoCoderSaurus Apr 5 '17 at 19:42
