update failing on python 3.9 with <filename> exists,owned by python39

Multiple errors like this:

python: /usr/lib/python3.9/zoneinfo/_zoneinfo.py exists in filesystem (owned by python39)

I see that similar errors are caused by pip installs and that one recommended solution is to uninstall pip installs and then re-install using pacman. But the

 pip list 

lists numerous entries, most of which I did not explicitly install.

There are other suggested solutions but so many that I don't feel confident that any one applies to my case.

I could perhaps uninstall python3.9 but uninstalling python often has disastrous results so...

pip list also lists packages that are installed globally, as well as dependencies.
You will need to go through the files not installed by pacman but having to do with pip packages.

Uninstalling the unofficial and unsupported 'python39' package is not uninstalling python.

You can't have both python and python39 installed, so yeah, you need to get rid of python39

Uninstalling python39 was the fix.

Thanks
