I used to install scrapy before, never had issues, what's wrong?

@hbdgaf I meant I installed it now and I got another issue –  Fischer Jul 19 at 9:28
    
@hbdgaf here's the new error pastebin.com/cpCRDVxH –  Fischer Jul 19 at 9:29
    
@hbdgaf did that, and fixed it, it's just that you said Separate question then. Or you could try chat. so I thought I should show the error, you know what, nevermind –  Fischer Jul 19 at 9:44
    
@hbdgaf ok next time, I will ask such questions there if I have to, thanks, not really used for chat rooms that's why i often post here –  Fischer Jul 19 at 10:21
    
@hbdgaf lets burn them, i wanted to delete the question but I don't want for the user who answered it to lose rep –  Fischer Jul 19 at 13:54

I got this error too , the question is " No package 'libffi' found c/_cffi_backend.c:13:17: fatal error: ffi.h: No such file or directory #include "

you should do this "sudo apt-get install libffi-dev"

tried that and I had to install libssl-dev too –  Fischer Jul 19 at 9:42
