'new' error in Search_issues() fields.copy() Attribute Error Edited

I 'rebuilt my PC' and reinstalled Python 2.7 and jira python library


python 2.7.17

JIRA 7.6.9

since then Search_issues() no longer works using a 'fields=' attribute.


searchstring = 'project in("MyProject") and issuetype in (epic)  ORDER BY "epic"'   
#verprint ("Got JIRAs")    


#first fails

j1=  jiraconn.search_issues(searchstring, startAt=0, maxResults=500,fields=['customfield_10090','duedate','customfield_10070', 'issuetype','reporter','summary']) 

# Matt A Removed Fields List 3rd July 2020   

#this works

j1=  jiraconn.search_issues(searchstring, startAt=0, maxResults=5000)


[, in File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/jira/", line 2084, in search_issues fields = fields.copy() AttributeError: 'list' object has no attribute 'copy']


if i remove the fields attribute from Search_Issues() all works well, but a lot slower of course.


any help would be much appreciated.
