The following error occurs, autocompletion not working:

A solution that worked:

Reinstall jedi in the host python3 (g:python3_host_prog) via pip, and the error is gone. Not sure why module jedi had pointed to a wrong (maybe old) version previously.

Unfortunately it is documented nowhere and error handling seems not robust. For example, we may detect jedi is well installed and import-able using the host python3 interpreter, and warn users if not.

Any other thoughts how we can improve this, as many users might experience this error?

I got the same error, and solved it by installing jedi into the python3 virtualenv I set up for neovim.

Hello @wookayin and @cbcoutinho, I wanted to write and let you know that I recently ran into this issue. I am currently running NVIM v0.3.2-dev on Ubuntu 16.04 and found that I also had to upgrade my installed version of jedi. After I did that, I found that ncm2 and ncm2-jedi worked correctly. Perhaps it would be a good idea if there was some documentation to indicate which version of jedi was supported?

I got the same error but upgrading jedi didn't work. Can you let me know which version of jedi worked for you? I'm on NVIM v0.3.1

Install jedi in the host python3 (in a conda env) solved my problem (nvim 0.3.1), thanks.
