Beets suddenly stopped working

This was working fine for me for a few days up until about 10 minutes ago. I have tried restarting, uninstalling beets, python 3.10 and 2.7 (should have been running against 3.10) removing and re-adding environment variables…nothing seems to work…I’m at a loss here (and partiallly in panic mode so i may not have thought of everything, but hoping someone can look at this error output that i get when running literally any beets command and maybe tell me what’s happening…it looks like a script error, but i would think reinstalling would fix that, but it does not.

beet config -p

ok, After i disabled all the plugins and re-enabled one by one, I found out that it’s the “lyrics” plugin that is having an issue, who supports this plugin?

This bug was recently fixed on master:


Works like a dream now! Man you guys are awesome!
