jwt has no attribute encode during deployment on render

I am encountering an issue when deploying my Flask app on the Render platform. Locally, the application runs successfully, but upon deployment, I am facing the following error:

AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'encode'

The error is specifically pointing to the line where I use the jwt.encode function. Here is the relevant code snippet:

def create_access_token(data: dict, expires_delta: timedelta):
    to_encode = data.copy()
    expire = datetime.utcnow() + expires_delta
    to_encode.update({"exp": expire})
    encoded_jwt = jwt.encode(to_encode, SECRET_KEY, algorithm="HS256")
    return encoded_jwt

I have verified that the jwt module is installed both locally and on the Render platform. Locally, the application works without any issues. However, on Render, I am encountering this attribute error.

Hi there,

Please double-check that you are not installing the JWT and PyJWT or including other modules that pull in the JWT module? From my understanding, both modules use the same namespace, but only PyJWT has the encode method.
