Botocore package in lambda python 3 9 runtime return error cannot import name

When working with the Botocore package in Lambda Python 3.9 runtime, you may encounter an error that says “cannot import name.” This error occurs when there is a problem with importing a specific module or function from the Botocore package. In this article, we will explore three different ways to solve this issue.

Solution 1: Update the Botocore package

The first solution is to update the Botocore package to the latest version. This can be done by running the following command:

pip install --upgrade botocore

This command will upgrade the Botocore package to the latest available version. After the upgrade, try running your code again and see if the “cannot import name” error persists. If the error still occurs, proceed to the next solution.

Solution 2: Check the import statement

The second solution is to check the import statement in your code. Make sure that you are importing the correct module or function from the Botocore package. Sometimes, the error occurs because the imported name does not exist in the package.

For example, if you are trying to import the “foo” function from the Botocore package, make sure that the package actually contains a function with that name. If not, you may need to update your code to import a different function or module.

Solution 3: Verify the Lambda environment

The third solution is to verify the Lambda environment in which your code is running. Make sure that the Lambda function is using the correct Python 3.9 runtime and that the Botocore package is compatible with this runtime version.

You can check the Lambda runtime by going to the AWS Lambda console and selecting your function. In the “Configuration” tab, you will find the runtime information. If the runtime is not set to Python 3.9, you may need to update it.

Additionally, ensure that the Botocore package is compatible with the Python 3.9 runtime. You can check the package’s compatibility by referring to the Botocore documentation or the package’s release notes.

# Your Python code goes here

After trying these three solutions, it is recommended to update the Botocore package to the latest version (Solution 1) as the first step. If the error still persists, then proceed to check the import statement (Solution 2) and verify the Lambda environment (Solution 3).

By following these steps, you should be able to resolve the “cannot import name” error when working with the Botocore package in Lambda Python 3.9 runtime.

  1. Hey guys, just wanted to share my experience with this Botocore package issue. Solution 2 worked like a charm for me, but Solution 3 was a complete bust! Anyone else faced the same? 🤔
