Install of collective.exportimport does not work

Wenn I try to install collective.exportimport as described in:

I get the buildout message:Error: Couldn't find a distribution for 'collective.exportimport'.
What do I miss?
How would it install on PLONE 6 as there is no more buildout process?

Please provide a full traceback

# set your Plone version
# change to your venv directory and pip install it
bin/pip install \
    collective.exportimport \

THis is what I see at the console: I can send you the buildout.cfg if necessary

root(mlpd,zinstance)# sudo -u mlpd ./bin/buildout -N
Develop: '/home/users/mlpd/Plone_mlpd/zinstance/src/mlpd.theme'

thanks. I will try it

Depending on your index, find-links and allow-hosts settings in buildout.cfg or ~/.buildout/default.cfg it might be, that the buildout cannot query the package index on pypi. You can see those settings with ./bin/buildout annotate and grep the settings. Or override the index in your buildout.cfg with

index =

best of luck :wink:

NOTE: since the pypi index isn't available on non-ssl anymore you have the best changes when using python 2.7.18. I'm currently running some Plone 4.3 sites on Ubuntu 18.04 with openssl1.1.1, zc.buildout=2.13.1 and setuptools=40.9.0 ... this fixes also some outdated issues regarding package installation.

PS: I always set up Plone 6 deployments with oldschool buildout (because it simply works) ... no fancy docker images pipapo needed ... I recommend to use GitHub - starzel/buildout: This is a standard Plone-buildout of the company as basis and follow the instructions in the README.

I recommend that you find and watch this presentation on YT before you begin:
