### Invalid weather line error with API

I am using the Energyplus-API for simulation. So I am using the same python-script at home and at work. Both OS are Ubuntu 20.04 and only differences is the python version (work: 3.8; home:3.9). So at work everything is fine. My simulation is running and there are no complaints. But if i run the same script at home, with the same packages installed, I get an epw-file error. Here is the relevant output from the error-file. I am really clueless, because it is the same script with the same epw-file. And to increase the confusion, if I use the same epw-file on a small API simulation at home, there is no error. Just in the simulation script, which includes classes, there is an error. I thought maybe it is because of different package version or PyCharm, but I deleted and reinstalled everything and still there is the same problem. Maybe somebody came across a similar case.

Thank you very much in advance and have a nice day :)
