Python Package Fails to Download " package installation failed!"
kbyrum (0)


I am trying to import the "face-alignment' Python package into my REPL, and my code is failing on the installation of the dependent packages. Strangely enough, upon failure the terminal doesn't give an error code or reason... simply:

Is this an issue with the package itself? The download link of the .whl file that the code is failing on yields a good download, so the websites the code is pulling from are good to use. Could this be an issue with the size of the package being downloaded, given that the package causing the code to fail is ~670 MB in size?

Thank you for your time and help!

(Note: once the REPL fails, you have to refresh the page to clear out the incomplete package downloads, or the code will not repeat the issue again)
