Do you have python-pillow-6.2.1-x86_64-1.txz installed?

EDIT: where does your python-pillow-7.0.0-x86_64-1 comes from? This version is not shipped in Slackware as far as I know.

PS current is not supported by SBo anyway. Maybe post your issue here.

I think this happens because of this modification to the SlackBuild

https://git.slackware.nl/current/dif...e7f0ce01fcd986

that was needed as upstream has decided to drop support for python-2.7.x
Code:
$ head /usr/doc/python-pillow-7.0.0/CHANGES.rst 

Changelog (Pillow)
==================

7.0.0 (2020-01-02)
------------------

- Drop support for EOL Python 2.7 #4109
  [hugovk, radarhere, jdufresne]
Pillow-6.2.2, released together with 7.0.0, has been the last to support python-2.7.x

https://github.com/python-pillow/Pillow/issues

if using 6.2.2 is not an option for current maybe I should drop a python2-pillow script for version 6.2.2 in the unofficial SBo repo for current to use for whatever needs it, but I suppose the same thing will happen with a lot of python modules from now on...

I think the best solution is to update variety and use python3 instead.

yes, regarding that yes, so it's better if someone report this to its maintainer...

But the issue to which I was hinting regarding everything using python-2.x and its modules (on SBo or not) unfortunately remains and a migration to python-3.x looks inevitable.

yeah seeings that slackbuilds maintainer has variety at ver variety_0.6.4-0-589-201704290523.tar.gz. and that link https://github.com/varietywalls/variety/releases -> Variety 0.8.1.
let me pull that one and see if it builds off slackbuild. as soon as I get out of FreeBSD.

you most probably will need also the python3 versions of the modules that are used by variety and it's not that straightwforward, that why I suggested you to ping the maintainer.

yes, it's because of an error that I forgot to fix: upgrading it to 1.36.0 I added the configure option "--enable-gtkdoc-header" and that needs lxml installed, it was reported to me and I forgot to remove it.
I'll do it right now, thanks for reporting it!

I'm afraid this is not an option because geany-plugins won't work anymore on current with that version...
