There are two different python packages 'pytzdata' and 'tzdata'.
The traceback asked for 'tzdata' ( https://pypi.org/project/tzdata/ ).
According this page, you should not need it :
"It is intended to be a fallback for systems that do not have system time
zone data installed (or don’t have it installed in a standard location)."
