Your python installation seems to be very broken - usually SSL is included in the python install. How did you install it? I would uninstall python and reinstall it from python.org

I think I messed up with the system. I tried to delete all files with python*, and now even the yum tool doesn't work.

root@jenkins-test:/tmp/Python-3.6.0a4$ yum install lzma
bash: /usr/bin/yum: /usr/bin/python2.7: bad interpreter: No such file or directory
root@jenkins-test:/tmp/Python-3.6.0a4$


I installed the newest python binary package, but when I run it, it doesn't find it.
