@SithumDantha Welcome to the forum :bouquet:

Please follow these steps for the installation of ROS and Rasa X :slight_smile:

Note: You can ignore few steps, if you already performed it!

Please install Anaconda from Anaconda | Individual Edition , then create the conda environment using the following command

  1. conda create -n rasa3 python=3.8
  2. conda activate rasa 3

PS: If you using Linux, check the environment for the same.

Note: I’d recommend to create a fresh environment if not you can proceed with next steps:

Note: Downgrade pip 21 to pip version to 20.2.2(conda install pip==20.2.2)

For Rasa Open Source:

`pip install rasa==2.8.1`
`pip install rasa-sdk==2.8.1'

check version rasa --version its install or not

For Installing basic project:

rasa init

then if you need

For Rasa-X Installation

pip install rasa-x==0.39.3 --extra-index-url https://pypi.rasa.com/simple

check rasa version rasa --version its install or not

You will see some error : ImportError: cannot import name ‘RowProxy’ from ‘sqlalchemy.engine’ Install

pip install SQLAlchemy==1.3.22 should fix it

If sanic related error: pip install sanic-jwt==1.6.0

delete .db (events and rasa ) if is showing alembic issue.

If you have any error in-between please share with us.

Note: You will see the Event Loop Close error in the terminal, you can ignore that, its an persistent issue with Rasa X and team is working on it.

I hope this will solve your issue. Good Luck!

@SithumDantha you are using Miniconda3, and I recommend to use Anaconda. Is it possible you can install Anaconda and follow the above steps? Or you have created the miniconda3 virtual environment? me confused.

@SithumDantha can you please briefly explain what you have done so far?

@SithumDantha Is that you following some video tutorial for installing anaconda or rasa? yes or no?

I create virtual environment. last days i follow video tutorial

@SithumDantha I can see, mean you not following my steps :frowning: please follow and you will be able to install with ease. Try a fresh approach my friend.

Note: Please dn’t follow the video tutorial and just stick with the steps and you will able to archived your goal.
