So i’ve installed the Symbolic package into Octave the way octave said to and i loaded it as well. However, when i try to run the ‘syms’ command in gives me this strange error. I have python installed and up to date as well as sympy.

To load the package, run 'pkg load symbolic' from the Octave prompt.
