# colcon build package failed: pythonpkg

Everything went well while I was trying to create a ros 2 package in Ubuntu 22.04 by following the ros2 documentation, however when I got to the colcon build step, it failed for python packages even though it works for cMake packages. What should I do? 1 package failed: pythonpkg 1 package had stderr output: pythonpkg

python3 --version
Python 3.10.6
