The Python Requests module is a popular, user-friendly library for making HTTP requests in Python. However, you may occasionally encounter issues where Requests seems to stop working in your code. Some common causes and solutions:
Verify Requests is Installed
Open a Python interpreter and try importing Requests:
If you get an error like "No module named 'requests'", then Requests is not installed or on your Python path.
pip install requests
Or with conda:
conda install requests
Check for Python Version Incompatibility
Requests may stop working if you upgrade Python but don't reinstall packages.
Investigate SSL/TLS Issues
Requests relies on SSL certificates to make HTTPS requests. Problems with certificates can break Requests.
Getting the Requests module working again usually requires only reinstallation, SSL fixes, or environment troubleshooting.
