Hi Mohammed,

I got the same error too and the problem was the variable ansible_python_interpreter. 

This line assumes you are running python3 and in my case that is not the case. I'm running python 2.7 so comment the line out  by adding the hashtag in the front and run the playbook again and let us know the results.

Thank you,

Juan
