Hi Lynn,

According to seems to be a bug in httplib2. Either patching or upgrading your python version should help/

Hi Lynn,

I would kindly ask you to go to your terminal and type in

python -V

md5 has been depricated since Python 2.5 and it is recommended to use hashlib instead.

Please, open up a Terminal and execute the following command:

$ python
&gt;&gt;&gt; import hashlib
&gt;&gt;&gt; m = hashlib.md5()
&gt;&gt;&gt; m.update("Nobody inspects")
&gt;&gt;&gt; m.update(" the spammish repetition")
&gt;&gt;&gt; m.digest()
&gt;&gt;&gt; m.digest_size
&gt;&gt;&gt; m.block_size

Kind regards,
