So if I understand Python correctly there is a package called BeautifulSoup that I want to install that is not one of the default packages that Alteryx installs for us. So, I need to tell Alteryx to go out and install it. I think I only need to do this one time and then after that, when I tell it I want to import BeautifulSoup, it will know what I am talking about and I won't need to fully install.
So from my error message, it looks like I am going through 4 attempts to install the package and I am timing out each time. It also however looks like I am successfully identifying a valid package that is being attempted to be installed from files.pythonhosted.org.
So my thought process to get around this, knowing nothing about Python, is
1) Increase the default timeout value from what appears to be 15 seconds
2) Go out and grab the package install file myself and manually put it in the Python package repository with all the canned default Alteryx packages at C:\Program Files\Alteryx\bin\Miniconda3\PythonTool_venv\Lib\site-packages
With approach 2 I can get the beautifulsoup4-4.8.0.tar.gz file downloaded but I don't think the directory above is the right place to drop it since there are no other files of that type there, even though it is clearly referencing other installed packages.
