Package Control psutil loop


I keep getting a message on startup from Package Control. Package Control installing 1 dependency and suggesting a restart.

OS: OSX Ventura 13.1
CPU: Apple M1 Ultra
Sublime Text: Build 4143


Package Control: Installing 1 missing dependency
Package Control: The dependency "psutil" is either not available on this platform or for this version of Sublime Text
Package Control: Installed missing dependency psutil
Package Control: Skipping automatic upgrade, last run at 2023-01-26 10:04:54, next run at 2023-01-26 11:04:54 or after
error: Package Control

1 missing dependency was just installed. Sublime Text should be restarted, otherwise one or more of the installed packages may not function properly.


The dialog box is displayed by accident as Package Control 3.0 decides to treat dependencies missing on single platforms as successfully installed during setup, but doesn’t remember that choise afterwards.

The root cause is required psutil dependency not being available for ARM architecture.

The only way to fix it currently is to uninstall the package(s) which request(s) this dependency to be available.

I removed the Nodejs v2.0.6 package to remove the dependency popup. Just putting this here since it was quite a few lines above the message.
