Thanks for advice,
I have tried upgrading from Python 3.6 to 3.8, and then I upgraded pip3.8
to max version, and the error I now get is: Command "python setup.py
egg_info" failed with error code 1 in /tmp/pip-build-r7s4auof/PyQt6/
I have also tried installing the wheel files directly (on Ubuntu 18.04)
from this link https://pypi.org/project/PyQt6/#modal-close , but all those
wheel files give the same result:
is not a supported wheel on this platform.
Any idea how I can install latest version of PyQt6 on Ubuntu 18.04 with
AMD64 CPU for Python3.8?
