Issue with OpenCV in Replit environment

Bug description: I am experiencing an issue with OpenCV in my Replit environment. When attempting to import the cv2 module, I receive an error message indicating a missing configuration file: [''].

I get the following error message:

Traceback (most recent call last): File “”, line 1, in import cv2 File “/home/runner/PA8-v1/venv/lib/python3.8/site-packages/cv2/”, line 181, in bootstrap() File “/home/runner/PA8-v1/venv/lib/python3.8/site-packages/cv2/”, line 111, in bootstrap load_first_config([‘’], True) File “/home/runner/PA8-v1/venv/lib/python3.8/site-packages/cv2/”, line 109, in load_first_config raise ImportError(‘OpenCV loader: missing configuration file: {}. Check OpenCV installation.’.format(fnames)) ImportError: OpenCV loader: missing configuration file: [‘’]. Check OpenCV installation.

Expected vs Current Behavior: Expected behavior: Successfully import the cv2 module without any errors. Current behavior: ImportError occurs when attempting to import the cv2 module.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open the Replit project
  2. Run the script that includes the line import cv2
  3. Observe the ImportError

I have tried reinstalling OpenCV using pip, but the issue persists. I suspect that there might be an issue with the Replit environment itself. Could you please assist me in resolving this issue? Thank you for your help.
