Tensorflow Install Issues With Pip3 MacOS

Osiyo. Dohiju? Hey, welcome back.

I was attempting to install Tensorflow on my Mac and had a couple issues that took moments to figure out but were annoying nonetheless. I encountered an issue with pip3 install tensorflow which would give me this error ERROR: Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement tensorflow.

The fix was simple enough. I am running Python 3.9 and Tensorflow 2 only supports up to 3.8 right now. So I need to downgrade my Python version. By default Homebrew installed 3.9.

I opened my Terminal and ran the following commands:

brew unlink python
brew install python@3.8
brew link python@3.8

Then I was able to run my Tensorflow install. That’s it.

Until next time. Dodadgohvi.
