A script cannot import Numba when executed from Spyder in Run file 
(F5) mode. So far this is the only instance import fails on Spyder --
stuff such as Numpy, Scipy and mpmath are imported fine.

I get the following error messages:

Traceback (most recent call last):

  File C:\Program Files\Python\Lib\site-packages\numba\core\typeconv\typeconv.py:4
    from numba.core.typeconv import _typeconv

ImportError: cannot import name '_typeconv' from 'numba.core.typeconv' (C:\Program Files\Python\Lib\site-packages\numba\core\typeconv\__init__.py)

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

Traceback (most recent call last):

ImportError: Numba could not be imported.
If you are seeing this message and are undertaking Numba development work, you may need to rebuild Numba.
Please see the development set up guide:


If you are not working on Numba development, the original error was: 'cannot import name '_typeconv' from 'numba.core.typeconv' (C:\Program Files\Python\Lib\site-packages\numba\core\typeconv\__init__.py)'.

I wonder if this isn't an internal path problem, but don't know where and
what to look for.

Thanks for any help.
