PyCall PyCapsule_Import could not import module "datetime"

I have a Python virtual environment and I’d like to install PyCall to point to the environment’s Python, but I get an error when I try to execute “using PyCall” (error message below). I’m on Linux and I first activate the environment and then attempt to get rid of any existing conflicts by deleting the existing Julia install folder and the Julia cache (~/.julia). Then I unzip Julia, run it, and execute “]add PyCall”. It installs with no problem, then I run “using PyCall” and get the following error:

ERROR: InitError: PyError ($(Expr(:escape, :(ccall(#= /home/wdk24/.julia/packages/PyCall/BD546/src/pydates.jl:68 =# @pysym(:PyCapsule_Import), Ptr{PyDateTime_CAPI}, (Ptr{UInt8}, Cint), "datetime.datetime_CAPI", 0))))) <class 'ImportError'>

Running “import datetime” in Python yields no issues, so I’m not sure what could be causing this. Any help is greatly appreciated!
