MySql Connector and Python

Wondering if someone may be able to help me. I've got a Raspberry Pi4 running a Linux server (Ubuntu 20.04 LTS) and have MySql Server installed on it. I'm able to connect via MySql Workbench to the testing db that I created, but when it comes to connecting via mysql.connector in a Python script, I am getting several Framework errors from the .py files in the Python 3.8 Libraries via the terminal. I've pasted the message below. Running Python 3.8 and have mysql-connector-python-8.0.21 installed correctly via the "pip3 install mysql-connector-python" command.I'm on a Mac running the latest version of Catalina. What I'm trying to do is to connect Python to MySql so that I can use Tkinter to create a GUI for the db.

File "", line 3, in <module>
mydb = mysql.connector.connect(
File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.8/lib/python3.8/site-packages/mysql/connector/", line 264, in connect
return CMySQLConnection(*args, **kwargs)
