PyCharm shows unresolved references error for valid code


File | Invalidate Caches... and restarting PyCharm helps.


Dmitry's response didn't work for me.

I got mine working by going to Project Interpreters, Selecting the "Paths" tab, and hitting the refresh button in that submenu. It auto-populated with something called "python-skeletons".

There are many solutions to this, some more convenient than others, and they don't always work.

Here's all you can try, going from 'quick' to 'annoying':

  • Do File -> Invalidate Caches / Restart and restart PyCharm.
    • You could also do this after any of the below methods, just to be sure.
  • First, check which interpreter you're running: Run -> Edit Configurations -> Configuration -> Python Interpreter.
  • Refresh the paths of your interpreter:
    • File -> Settings
    • Project: [name] -> Project Interpreter -> 'Project Interpreter': Gear icon -> More...
    • Click the 'Show paths' button (bottom one)
    • Click the 'Refresh' button (bottom one)
  • Remove the interpreter and add it again:
    • File -> Settings
    • Project: [name] -> Project Interpreter -> 'Project Interpreter': Gear icon -> More...
    • Click the 'Remove' button
    • Click the 'Add' button and re-add your interpeter
  • Delete your project preferences
    • Delete your project's .idea folder
    • Close and re-open PyCharm
    • Open your project from scratch
  • Delete your PyCharm user preferences (but back them up first).
    • ~/.PyCharm50 on Mac
    • %homepath%/.PyCharm50 on Windows
  • Switch to another interpreter, then back again to the one you want.
  • Create a new virtual environment, and switch to that environments' interpreter.
  • Switch to another interpreter altogether, don't switch back.

If you are using Docker, take note:
