az command stop working

  • fennng 

/usr/local/bin/az: line 6: python3: command not found

Haven't used az command for a while.
I recently migrated from azure container instance to azure linux VM. Because I have mysql and azure file as docker volume separately, migration is too simple. It's all about a command to start a new docker container. 
Now I am going to stop the old container instance. 
Then my az command gave me above error.
The solution is reinstalling python

fengnz@mac:~/Downloads > brew uninstall –ignore-dependencies python

Uninstalling /usr/local/Cellar/python/2.7.13... (6,336 files, 86.6MB)

python 3.6.4_2 1 is still installed.

Remove all versions with `brew uninstall –force python`.

fengnz@mac:~/Downloads > brew update && brew install python

Updated 1 tap (homebrew/core).

==> Updated Formulae

After above two commands. 
My Az command is back

fengnz@mac:~/Downloads > az
