Installation issues with Debian 9 x86_64

using Python 3.5: "NameError: name 'reload' is not defined"

using python 2.7: "OSError: /opt/wingide/bin/__os__/linux-x64/runtime-openssl/lib/ symbol EVP_idea_cbc, version OPENSSL_1_1_0 not defined in file with link time reference"

This is a quite vanilla debian 9 with python 2.7 and 3.5 (default)

Don't set WINGPYTHON. That's for people working on Wing only and in general Wing only runs with the Python installation that's included with it (and is only intended for Wing and not for use with your own code; Wing uses the latest Python on your system by default for your code, or the Python you point it to with Python Executable in Project Properties, from the Project menu).
