Installation issues

I want to install Invenio on my VM for test before install it to my organization server.
I followed this tutorial Quick start - Turn-key research data management repository
and when i run invenio-cli install for installation, i got the following error

Failed to install dependencies.
Errors: Traceback (most recent call last):

ImportError: cannot import name 'soft_unicode' from 'markupsafe' (/home/francky/.local/share/virtualenvs/test-FbZuhZEr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/markupsafe/

I am on this for 1 week now. I change markupsafe version from 2.1.0 to 2.0.1 but i always have this error.

Can somebody, help me ?

I ran into this issue too. In the pipfile add MarkupSafe<2.1, delete the pipfile.lock that was created, and run the cli command again.
