Trytond_import_countries fails to update subdivisions

When entering parties using the Tryton client, the Country or Subdivision I enter does not get saved. I assume this is because I need to import countries and subdivisions using trytond_import_countries, and then pick from the list in the Tryton client.

I ran trytond_import_countries, it updated countries but then failed updating subdivisions. I believe this is a known error with issue report

If I understand the issue report correctly, the workaround is to edit pycountry/databases/iso3166-2.json and add a new subdivision type:

  "code": "BA-BRC",
  "name": "Brčko distrikt",
  "type": "District with special status"

but when I examine iso3166-2.json (pycountry 22.3.5), this entry already exists!

Can anyone point out the obvious? What am I missing?

pycountry version:

(env) [tryton@starlord ~/trytond/env/lib/python3.8/site-packages/pycountry/databases]$ pip list | grep pycountry
pycountry                     22.3.5
(env) [tryton@starlord ~/trytond/env/lib/python3.8/site-packages/pycountry/databases]$

As the bug report says, you must not use pycountry above 20.7.3 (you will be able to update when upgrading to the future series 6.4).

Thanks for clarification. I see now the example in the issue was of the breaking code, not the workaround. All fixed. :slight_smile:

(env) [tryton@starlord ~/trytond]$ pip uninstall pycountry
(env) [tryton@starlord ~/trytond]$ pip install "pycountry==20.7.3"
(env) [tryton@starlord ~/trytond]$ trytond_import_countries -c trytond.conf -d scc
Update countries
Update subdivisions
Update subdivisions parent
Update subdivisions en
(env) [tryton@starlord ~/trytond]$
