I just installed SageMath 9.2 on a new Mac. It does not launch Jupiter either via the App or via terminal launch. It states there is a "ModuleNotFoundError: No module named '_ssl' " error as discussed below, but I am not sure the cause. I have applied the other recommendations listed via other posts.

Below is what happens at via the command line launch. Any suggestions? When I try yo rebuild Python (run "sage -f python3") it gets an error with SciPy installation.

Thank you

Please wait while the Sage Jupyter Notebook server starts...

    import _ssl             # if we can't import it, let the error propagate
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named '_ssl'

The Jupyter notebook requires ssl, even if you do not use https. Install the openssl development packages in your system and then rebuild Python (sage -f python3).
