Same problem here, I downgraded to python-pyroute2-0.6.13-1 to make it work again.

I recently also had a problem with the ssl package. I updated back to the latest python-pyroute2, etc. I stopped hass, blew away /var/lib/hass/deps/lib, and restarted. It took a while for all of the python modules to reinstall but my installation is working again.

Thanks, that fixed it for me too! (had to restart twice)

I added these instructions to home assistant's archwiki page.

With the current version (1:2023.5.2-1) the workaround to use python-pyroute2-0.6 is no more working.
Now home-assistant seems to require python-pyroute2 > 0.7 and the current version 0.7.7 is just fine.
