[ethereum_ropsten] ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'rlp'

I am trying to issue certificate in ethereum ropsten testnet. But I am facing error-

(venv) bash-4.3# pwd
/cert-issuer
(venv) bash-4.3# cert-issuer -c conf_ethtest.ini
WARNING - Your app is configured to skip the wifi check when the USB is plugged in. Read the documentation to ensure this is what you want, since this is less secure

ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'rlp’

But rlp is already installed. I checked using pip freeze

eth-hash==0.3.1
eth-typing==2.2.2
eth-utils==1.10.0
ethereum==2.3.1

rlp==0.6.0

rlp is already installed .

(venv) bash-4.3# pip install rlp

Requirement already satisfied: rlp in /root/venv/lib/python3.6/site-packages (0.6.0)

ethereum_requirements.txt contains

coincurve==7.1.0
ethereum==2.3.1

Following is the configuration file-

rlp<1(venv) bash-4.3# cat conf_ethtest.ini
issuing_address = 0xe38eeef35c10e33d077cb4e5cf67bfaec3b26758
chain = ethereum_ropsten
usb_name=/cert-issuer/
key_file=pk_issuer.txt
unsigned_certificates_dir=/cert-issuer/data/unsigned_certificates
blockchain_certificates_dir=/cert-issuer/data/blockchain_certificates
work_dir=/cert-issuer/work
no_safe_mode

How can I get past this error?Please help I am stuck.

Guy can anyone please help in this.
@Taibah @JustNET JustN @dannysuarez @jackblock @yosuke @lemoustachiste Anyone?
I am struck here for couple of days .

I tried after adding scrypt, in the Docker file.

Mentioned by @JustNET

but issue is still there.

My docker file looks like this -

(venv) bash-4.3# cat …/cert-issuer/Dockerfile

I’m sorry I’m not a Python expert, but this looks not directly related to cert-issuer.
@lparker do you have any idea maybe?

I am able to generate a certificate now.

The problem was when i was running the issue command

(venv) bash-4.3# cert-issuer -c conf_ethtest.ini
for some reason instead of considering the installed rlp in virtual environment , it was trying to look outside the virtual env.

I don’t know why this happened . but when i did pip install coincurve==7.1.0
ethereum==2.3.1 & rlp==0.6.0 outside venv , It ran and issued certificate.

I tried checking the path variable but it was already pointing to the venv location. So for the time being I installed the above 3 libs outside venv until anyone can help me point out the issue.

@lemoustachiste Thanks for your support.
