I believe python2 pyserial and configonj modules were deleted by a recent update. I had a friend confirm it on his system also
There is currently no way I could find to re-install them . Its like they were uninstalled and then removed form the repositories
For me this breaks weewx which is not python3 compatible as of yet, but should be later this year

Yes, we are removing all python2 packages from the distribution. Is weevx maintainers haven’t noticed switch to python3 for eleven years, than you should complain with them.
I have no issue with removing support for python 2 from the distribution but deleting it from users machines is unacceptable, especially when there is no way to reinstall them from yast as they are gone from the repos when things break. When did you notify users that python2 was going to be removed? Am I now in a race to lock python2 stuff before you delete it?
You have been informed in 2009 that Python 2 is going away. That you and weewx developers didn’t care is not our problem.
Please, do not reopen this bug again, nothing will change on the fact that Python 2 packages are going away.
If you need to have stable distribution, than you are advised to use Leap 15, which remains more stable.
