REST API Tutorial Python sample fails: unexpected keyword argument pool_instance

I've posted the question to stackoverflow before realizing that the real knowledge should be here.. I'm copying it here for clarity:

I'm using Canopy Python 2.7.11 to try reading Jira tickets with the Atlassian REST API tutorial "Example #1: Graphing Image Links" sample at which uses restkit

But what I get is an error message

\Python>python RCA-12
Fetching RCA-12
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 107, in <module>
graph = build_graph_data(start_issue_key, issue_fetcher)
File "", line 68, in build_graph_data

issue = get_issue(issue_key)

response = resource.get(headers = {'Content-Type' : 'application/json'})

line 190, in get
raise last_error
TypeError: wrap_socket() got an unexpected keyword argument 'pool_instance'

The jira server has an https address (the sample uses http) but I have no problems in browsing the Jira tickets with a web browser. I can get the tickets in json format using either Chrome and / or Postman using a call in the format


so I know that the system is accessible and I have right access codes..

But I'm out of ideas about what could be the issue with the Python program.
