Discog plugin (and others) failing to load

Hi all.

I haven’t been using beets for a couple of weeks. I used it now and I noticed some strange errors I never got before.

I’m parting the output for the discogs plugin, but I also get quite similar errors for fetchart and lyrics

** error loading plugin discogs:

I just updated beet using pip to the latest version (1.4.7). I use python 2.7.9 on Windows 7.

Wow; that’s weird! Have you considered reinstalling Python? A more recent version of Python would also probably be a good idea; 2.7.9 is more than four years old.

I could consider that. After all I don’t use python on this machine for much except for beets, so I don’t risk much regressions.

What if I switched to python 3?

Seems like a good idea.

I brutally updated python by installing the laterst 2.7 release in my current folder.

Now I tried and everything worked as a cherm. I even tried importing an album directly providing the Discogs release IR with the -S switch and it worked flawlessly.
