Python code stopped working after upgrade

I upgraded Anaconda, my working code now has a hitch I’ve been unable to figure it out. Would you have some time to help, have you run into these errors with data=json.loads(response.text) and decoding. The error log is below. I appreciate any time on this.

Thank you

This most likely isn’t a Jupyter question. If you ran this directly as Python code in a script or in the console, you most likely would see the same issue.

That being said, you may be using outdated approaches here. What you have shared isn’t in a code block and doesn’t have a corresponding code block shared, and so it isn’t easy to test. For example, no import statements, we don’t know what headers is defined as, etc.
Please see here for help about sharing code here where you bracket it with three backticks.

Have you tried any of the replies to here to debug it?
