Could not satisfy dependencies: - unable to satisfy dependency 'openssl-1.1' required by python2

Pacman gui indicates an update for python2…but when update is performed, I get this double-dreaded message:
//could not satisfy dependencies:
//- unable to satisfy dependency ‘openssl-1.1’ required by python2
? I am aware of the openssl security vulns reported – how might i fix this please?
Thank you to all who do good in this crazy world. Dietrich
