I changed my username by following this thread: How do I change my username?
This was a few weeks ago and I have just encountered my first problem, Astropy (for python 2.7) is having trouble downloading files because it is looking in the wrong cache folder. Error message: IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: u'/home/jill/.astropy/cache/download/py2/bf6211066f3d9a9b058d46183baba6ab' . (my old username was jill, and I can see that this file exists in my new home folder).
After debugging line by line, it seems as if the error is coming from the 'Shelve' module. As in, that is where /home/jill is first introduced in the url.
I have tried reinstalling python (sudo apt-get install --reinstall python2.7) and reinstalling astropy (pip2 uninstall astropy, pip2 install astropy).
