One of us misses something, not sure who. I can't say where this comes from. Perhaps adding --debug helps understanding the error.

Another option might be replacing the python-designate client using pip install. I am not sure if you risk overwriting other files this way.

See You can also select a specific version of the client, but I don't know the pip install option by heart.
