Steps to reproduce

  1. … Either update or install sabnzbd

Expected behaviour

  • … update or install sabnzbd without failing

Actual behaviour

  • … software fails to either update or be installed due to failure to build wheel for cryptography.

Extra details

  • …I encountered this issue while update sabnzbd, after getting frustrated I installed the OS fresh, and try to install the same sabnzbd, and it failed again.

on 32bit we use pre-compiled wheels provided by Unfortunately, latest build has been failed there. piwheels - cryptography

Therefore you have issues to set it up.

Bad thing, cryptography==38.0.3 is explicitly require by Sabnzbd

As a workaround you could try to install Rust + other dependency (required by cryptography) by your own. But it is quite a large build

curl -sSfL '' -o
chmod +x
./ -y --profile minimal
source "$HOME/.cargo/env"
dietpi-software install 16 130
apt install libffi-dev libssl-dev
pip3 install cryptography
dietpi-software install 139

Thank you sir, this fixes the problem. Hopefully this gets fixed in the future!

@MichaIng I know you are already supporting piwheels guys on the Rust implementation. Just as information, cryptography is currently broken as well :confused:

My fix has not been merged yet :confused:: Install rustup as piwheels user by MichaIng · Pull Request #328 · piwheels/piwheels · GitHub
