problem upgrading to 1.7.1 due to folder "murmurhash-1.0.1.dist-info" *(SOLVED)

While trying to update Prodigy to 1.7 I hit the following problem

Could not install packages due to an EnvironmentError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: ‘c:\users\xxx\appdata\roaming\python\python36\site-packages\murmurhash-1.0.1.dist-info\RECORD’

after checking the folders I have found that the needed file (RECORD) was instead in c:\users\xxx\appdata\roaming\python\python36\site-packages\murmurhash-1.0.1.dist-info\murmurhash-1.0.1.dist-info

i.e. 1 folder deeper but with the same name “murmurhash-1.0.1.dist-info”. I copied all the files from there in the asked folder, and the upgrade was done with no other errors

I am posting this in case someone on Windows hit the same issue
