How do I fix it so I can download PyDictionary.
I am using python 3.10.4.
I have saved Python onto a hard drive D: but it causes no other problems for pip.
The main problem I can see is that there is a problem importing Futures but from my research I have found that Futures is already downloaded for python 3 but when I try to uninstall it is says skipping as futures in not installed so maybe that is the problem but I don`t know how to solve it.
Anyone have any ideas?

>Solution :

This seems to be a known issue with this package. When issues like this occur, it is always best to go and check the official GitHub repository of the project and look through the open issues.

I don’t have any privileges on this repo. But I did some debugging I think the actual issue here is that goslate depends on futures, and futures >=3.0.0 isn’t installable on python3 at all. The pypi page calls this out saying It does not work on Python 3 due to Python 2 syntax being used in the codebase. Python 3 users should not attempt to install it, since the package is already included in the standard library. —
I am able to work around the issue by installing futures <3.0.0 before installing PyDictionary:
