Does that folder exist for you when you into it?

id suggest running each part of the script from the command line 1 by 1 and post any errors you get and which command caused the error.

The backup should be moved before the cp as after cp the system's lib files have already been overwritten by brew installed ones.

@fengs I think has a pretty good suggestion, but now I am going back and looking at old version I don't see the issue. The system shouldn't be using "libssl.1.1.dylib" and "libcrypto.1.1.dylib". We were doing a backup of the system libs if they existed. The cp would only overwrite "libssl.1.1.dylib" and "libcrypto.1.1.dylib" if they existed.

Well might as well as combine the bottom part of the script as the previous person suggestion. Sorry for the added complexity, but I think adding the if statements might prevent some possible errors and will be good to add.

OK, I think should be fine for a while now taking into account everyone's suggestions. Won't get ANY errors now for sure. I removed the now unnecessary directory changes.

hello, i had an issue with 'abort 6' when importing 'requests' package after updating to catalina. while searching for a solution, i was lead to this page. unfortunately none of the above worked for me, however...

updating to python 3.8 manually from python.org seemed to solve this issue very easily for me. i had to reinstall all my packages (w/ pip3) as i came across errors, but that wasn't so bad.

i don't see any of my projects having an issue with python3.8 so far (been using 3.7 for a while)

hope this helps someone!
thanks for all the additional suggestions and efforts!

cd /usr/local/lib
ln -sn ../Cellar/openssl@1.1/1.1.1g/lib/libcrypto.1.1.dylib libcrypto.dylib
ln -sn ../Cellar/openssl@1.1/1.1.1g/lib/libssl.1.1.dylib libssl.dylib

would be enough, no need to copy

This solved my issue perfectly! Thank you
