Two things here, when I use Synaptic to search for python-openssl it shows two packages installed. python-openssl and python-pyopenssl. If you can't install one of them then why not try the other. I really don't know if this will make any difference though.
The second thing is to try and install it from a terminal
- Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install python-openssl
It may not succeed but if it doesn't it might tell you why it has failed.
EDIT. Just read the last paragraph of your post - I doubt that downloading from a terminal will work if you can't use it in Mint7.
