The askbot self-test keeps failing when I try to run

sudo python syncdb

It says it relates to pytz:

found version 2013b0, pytz==2013b required.

I uninstalled and installed the latest and it still fails. I cannot seem to make this system happy - any idea as to why or how to go about fixing this?

I'm having the same problem. It seems that a new version of python setuptools is adding this "0" at the end of the version name. I've tested to change the required version, but it seems that the requirement file is not read to execute "" tasks.

While we don't have a solution, you can add this line to you "" file: ASKBOT_SELF_TEST = False

This will skip the tests!
