pydrive: TypeError: argument should be integer or bytes-like object, not 'str'

I get this error:

TypeError: argument should be integer or bytes-like object, not 'str'

I saw a question like this on stackoverflow: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/60343758/socks-py-argument-should-be-integer-or-bytes-like-object-not-str

but I don’t understand what exactly to do. I would be glad to receive any links, and more detailed explanations

[edit by admin: formatting]

Sorry about that, it looks like a configuration error on our part. If you run this Bash command it should fix it:

pip3.8 install --user --force-reinstall PySocks

thanks, this solved the problem

Excellent, thanks for confirming!
