certificate verify failed

in the client after logged in with user: <username> you get the following error:

certificate verify failed: unable to get local issuer certificate

please have a look at this stack overflow post to resolve the issue.

global name 'f' is not defined

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "start.py", line 175, in
TOKEN = get_token(username, password)
File "start.py", line 64, in get_token
print(f,"authenticate {username} to {url} ...")
NameError: global name 'f' is not defined

you need to use python version 3.6 or higher. the f-string format got implemented in that version.
