Fix: error: invalid command bdist_wheel - Python

error: invalid command 'bdist_wheel'

The reason for this error is that you do not have the module wheel installed on your device. You will need to make use of pip/pip3 installer to get it installed before using it.

pip install wheel 


pip3 install wheel 

Validate installation:
pip show wheel         
Name: wheel
Version: 0.40.0
Summary: A built-package format for Python
Author-email: Daniel Holth <>
Location: /opt/homebrew/lib/python3.11/site-packages

Try to run your Python program, setup or script again and you should not see this error again.
