Fatal error from pip prevented installation.

If you get errors resembling any of the above, it's probably because your Python version is too old. To install a newer version (3.9+ is required), you will need to do something like this:
# install a newer version of python
sudo apt install python3.9 python3.9-venv
# install pipx
python3.9 -m pip install --user pipx
# add pipx to your path
python3.9 -m pipx ensurepath
# install bbot
python3.9 -m pipx install bbot
# run bbot
If you run into a
ModuleNotFoundError, try running your
bbot command again with
--force-deps. This will repair your modules' Python dependencies.
As a troubleshooting step it is sometimes useful to clear out your older configs and let BBOT generate new ones. This will ensure that new defaults are property restored, etc.
# make a backup of the old configs
mv ~/.config/bbot ~/.config/bbot.bak
# generate new configs
