Great! Thank you for the tip! I had installed ipython back in 2008 and sage apparently was find that old copy. Once I deleted it, sage is starting up as expected. Thank you!

I am trying to install SageMath 1.8 on a debian 8.10 (Jessie). I have tried both the Debian precompiled binary package from the website: sage-8.1-Debian_GNU_Linux_8-x86_64.tar.bz2, and also from source: sage-8.1.tar.gz

Either way I get the same error when I start it up: ââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââ â SageMath version 8.1, Release Date: 2017-12-07 â â Type "notebook()" for the browser-based notebook interface. â â Type "help()" for help. â ââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââââ Traceback (most recent call last): File "/d1/opt/sage/SageMath-8.1/src/bin/sage-ipython", line 7, in <module> from sage.repl.interpreter import SageTerminalApp File "/d1/opt/sage/SageMath-8.1/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/sage/repl/", line 108, in <module> from sage.repl.prompts import SagePrompts, InterfacePrompts File "/d1/opt/sage/SageMath-8.1/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/sage/repl/", line 16, in <module> from IPython.terminal.prompts import Prompts ImportError: No module named terminal.prompts

I have googled around and I do see the problem has occurred in RedHat Fedora, but the solutions are RedHat-specific. The packages they say to include are not available in Debian. Additionally, they are pulling sage from the RedHat repository. Any help would be most welcome. Thank you in advance.
