Every time I run vim I receive the following error message that disappear afterwords. What can I do to get rid of that message or to get rid of the problem?

[deoplete] [yarp] [deoplete] job is dead. failed establishing channel for ['python3', '-u', '/home/sb/.vim/plugged/nvim-yarp/pythonx/yarp.py', '/tmp/vxXiDJM/0', 2, 'deoplete']
[deoplete] function deoplete#enable[9]..deoplete#initialize[1]..deoplete#init#_initialize[15]..deoplete#init#_channel[24]..yarp#core#notify[1]..yarp#core#wait_channel, line 13
  • Best is to file with deoplete author—theyll be able to help you debug the issue. In the meantime, you could disable deoplete to make the error go away, but you’ll lose the functionality

  • Thank you. I disabled it with let g:deoplete#enable_at_startup = 0.

I had the same issue and fixed with pip install --user pynvim

    Welcome to this site :) Note that OP fixed their issue with let g:deoplete#enable_at_startup = 0 (they should have posted it as an answer). Also it would be worth adding to your answer that before trying to install pynvim one should check :checkhealth which will say if pynvim or other dependencies are needed.
