I upgraded to py27-matplotlib@2.2.2 recently and when I started ipython and imported matplotlib I got the following error:

[gs66w-corcoran:~] corcoran% ipython

ImportError: No module named functools_lru_cache

Following, I installed version 1.5 of py27-backports-functools_lru_cache:

sudo port install py27-backports-functools_lru_cache

and that seemed to resolve the issue. It looks like the dependency on py27-backports-functools_lru_cache may be missing from the matplotlib package

Works fine for me with python 3.6. Must be a python 2 issue only.

Yeah, looks like it's missing this dependency for python 2.7

From looking at the Portfile that doesn't seem to be the case, the dependency on py27-backports-functools_lru_cache is present for Python 2.7.

okay, the problem was probably introduced with an update of py27-backports-functools_lru_cache that I did about a week ago. It looks like that version changed (I think incorrectly) its file and when trying to upgrade it one sees the following message (new installs do work though):

Error: Failed to activate py27-backports-functools_lru_cache: Image error: /opt/local/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/site-packages/backports/ is being used by the active py27-backports port. Please deactivate this port first, or use 'port -f activate py27-backports-functools_lru_cache' to force the activation.

It's easy enough though to miss this message when trying to update many ports... The unfortunate side effect is that the previous version of py27-backports-functools_lru_cache is already deactivated and the new one cannot be activated, effectively resulting in removal of the package. This likely affects other ports that rely on this package and could explain some other failures I noticed myself recently (e.g.,

Sorry about that, I will take a look at it and will submit a PR to fix this as soon as possible

Resolution: fixed
Status: assignedclosed

In 5549daede85b41d4000ad13a7b841e439e8b09d9/macports-ports (master):

py-backports-functools_lru_cache: fix activation issue

The file is present in various packages within the backports
namespace, preventing port activation. Therefore, add py-backports as a
dependency and do not install those files from this port (solution taken
from several other py-backports-* Portfiles).

Closes: #56789
