I keep getting the error message "ModuleNotFoundError"

I'm working on a Python project in which I scrape data from a website using the requests and BeautifulSoup modules. Yet, I continue to receive the problem message "ModuleNotFoundError: No module called 'bs4'". I attempted to install BeautifulSoup using pip, but it did not appear to work.

import requests
from bs4 import BeautifulSoup

url = 'https://www.example.com'
response = requests.get(url)
soup = BeautifulSoup(response.text, 'html.parser')

This is the error message:

ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'bs4'

I attempted pip install beautifulsoup4 in the terminal, but when I try to execute the script, I get the same error message.

Yet, despite my efforts, the outcome is not what I had hoped for. I came across this article that uses the example, but I'm not sure I got it right. Could you please help me?

Hi @quibtisa,

Did these packages host on the same path that you installed the python? If not, have you confirmed power bi and python has enough permissions to access these paths and files? (AFAIK, current it seems not support cloudy path)

In addition, I'd like to suggest you check the following document about support python package in power bi if helps:
