One update for older installations. I have one old dedicated frontend
that is beyond updating. I have sometimes to reinstall everything. It
is still running with python 2.7.10 and next to earlier mentioned
python modules it was missing urllib3. The latest version of urllib3
that would install is 1.24.2

After that it worked OK. Not bad for a machine/installation untouched
since 2015! Except for moving it from an old big tv to a flatscreen 4
years ago.
