@Piyush Kadam,

What is the version of pip you are using. If your pip version > 10, then it doesn't support python 2.6. Make sure to upgrade python or install pip version < 10. Then try install the mrjob package.

pip --version


Please "Accept" the answer if this works.

pip intall mrjob==0.5.11
it "No module named sysconfig" after looking for sysconfig in python2.6/site-packages.

You need before install pathlib. 

pip install pathlib    (need to next step)


pip install mrjob

Add this: need for mrjob error reading this config file as Json (without yaml library)

sudo yum install python-yaml (+ others before)

It's working on Python 2.X
