SixFab Install Fails on RPi with Ubuntu 23.04

I’m getting an error when attempting to make a device using the SixFab install code. The install breaks at:

sudo pip3 install --no-cache-dir -U atcom

running the above command separately results in an error stating the environment is externally managed. There are a number of helpful suggestions about virtual environments and the possibility of running the command and passing:


but I can only do that on my own and when done it fails to help the SixFab install get past that error. The last bit is a suggestion that I look at PEP 668 for the detailed specification. I have two of these devices and neither of them are able to install the Core Tool.

Please help.

I installed Ubuntu 22.04.2 LTS, configured my WiFi and ran the SixFab script… and it worked. At this point I’m going to say Ubuntu 23.04 is not supported.
