[SOLVED] Playwright installation Error. pip install playwright gives ”No matching distribution”


This Content is from Stack Overflow. Question asked by Mayank Mishra

When tried to install from pip install playwright as mentioned on the pypi website I got the error

ERROR: Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement playwright (from versions: none) 
ERROR: No matching distribution found for playwright

In installation docs it was mentioned to use pip install pytest-playwright . After using it, pip started downloading all the available versions (not the latest or just a single one) then gave error that the version dependencies conflict with each other. As a fix I am asked to remove version from the command line (which I never gave).

I am using linux 32bit, python 3.8 interpreter, pycharm venv

  1. Is the pip install playwright not working because of 32 bit machine (however it is not mentioned anywhere, or maybe I didn’t see).
  2. What’s wrong happening with pip install pytest-playwright

Please help.
Shell output with pip install pytest-playwright is here.

ERROR: Cannot install pytest-playwright==0.0.10, pytest-playwright==0.0.11, pytest-playwright==0.0.12, pytest-playwright==0.0.2, pytest-playwright==0.0.3, pytest-playwright==0.0.4, pytest-playwright==, pytest-playwright==0.0.5, pytest-playwright==0.0.6, pytest-playwright==0.0.7, pytest-playwright==0.0.8, pytest-playwright==0.0.9, pytest-playwright==0.1.0, pytest-playwright==0.1.1, pytest-playwright==0.1.2, pytest-playwright==0.2.0, pytest-playwright==0.2.1, pytest-playwright==0.2.2, pytest-playwright==0.2.3 and pytest-playwright==0.3.0 because these package versions have conflicting dependencies.

The conflict is caused by:
    pytest-playwright 0.3.0 depends on playwright>=1.18
    pytest-playwright 0.2.3 depends on playwright>=1.13
    pytest-playwright 0.2.2 depends on playwright>=1.13
    pytest-playwright 0.2.1 depends on playwright>=1.13
    pytest-playwright 0.2.0 depends on playwright>=1.13
    pytest-playwright 0.1.2 depends on playwright>=1.10.0
    pytest-playwright 0.1.1 depends on playwright>=1.10.0
    pytest-playwright 0.1.0 depends on playwright>=1.10.0
    pytest-playwright 0.0.12 depends on playwright>=1.9.0
    pytest-playwright 0.0.11 depends on playwright==1.8.0a1
    pytest-playwright 0.0.10 depends on playwright>=0.170.0
    pytest-playwright 0.0.9 depends on playwright>=0.0.4
    pytest-playwright 0.0.8 depends on playwright>=0.0.4
    pytest-playwright 0.0.7 depends on playwright>=0.0.4
    pytest-playwright 0.0.6 depends on playwright>=0.0.4
    pytest-playwright 0.0.5 depends on playwright>=0.0.4
    pytest-playwright depends on playwright==0.0.4
    pytest-playwright 0.0.4 depends on playwright
    pytest-playwright 0.0.3 depends on playwright
    pytest-playwright 0.0.2 depends on playwright

To fix this you could try to:
1. loosen the range of package versions you've specified
2. remove package versions to allow pip attempt to solve the dependency conflict


  1. You can see the actual wheel list at the "Download files" tab: https://pypi.org/project/playwright/1.25.2/#files
    There you will see that unfortunately no wheels were built for linux 32bit

  2. pytest-playwright try to install playwright but failes because it doesnt find any (same issue as the first)
