So I'm trying to reinstall python3 using Homebrew on Mac OSX El Capitan Version 10.11.6, but I keep getting errors. The commands I'm using to install python3 are the following:
$ brew install python3
The first command seems to work fine, no errors are thrown.
$ brew linkapps
This second command throws the following errors:
Warning: `brew linkapps` has been deprecated and will eventually be removed! Unfortunately `brew linkapps` cannot behave nicely with e.g. Spotlight using either aliases or symlinks and Homebrew formulae do not build "proper" `.app` bundles that can be relocated. Instead, please consider using `brew cask` and migrate formulae using `.app`s to casks.

When I try to run
$ python3 in terminal, I get the following error:
Failed to import the site module Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/site.py", line 73, in <module> __boot() File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/site.py", line 26, in __boot import imp # Avoid import loop in Python >= 3.3 File "/usr/local/Cellar/python3/3.6.1/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.6/lib/python3.6/imp.py", line 27, in <module> import tokenize File "/usr/local/Cellar/python3/3.6.1/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.6/lib/python3.6/tokenize.py", line 33, in <module> import re File "/usr/local/Cellar/python3/3.6.1/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.6/lib/python3.6/re.py", line 142, in <module> class RegexFlag(enum.IntFlag): AttributeError: module 'enum' has no attribute 'IntFlag'
Would love some advice on how to solve this. The goal is that I can install python3 and opencv3 as suggested in this tutorial however I am stuck with python3 not working.
