ValueError: Too many values to unpack in plone.recipe.zeoserver == 2.0.1

I am attempting to upgrade from Plone 5.0.10 to 5.1-latest. I have been working through some issues with buildout, but this one has me hung up a bit.

I am using, which pins plone.recipe.zeoserver at 2.0.1. buildout reports the following error:

An internal error occurred due to a bug in either zc.buildout or in a
recipe being used:
Traceback (most recent call last):

ValueError: too many values to unpack

I have updated zc.buildout to the latest 2.13.2, but I am still encountering the error.

I also have already read through this post: Rebuilding a Plone 4.2 site and getting ValueError: too many values to unpack.

It does not seem to be the same issue that I am experiencing. Any help is appreciated if anyone has encountered this before.

Thank you!

The problem was actually with setuptools and zc.buildout versions. See: Upgrade from Plone 5.0.10 to 5.1-latest BTree 4.4.1
