I recently started getting failed builds due to pytest not being found. Nothing has changed, and this only happens on my python 3.5 tests.
The other versions of python (e.g. 2.7, 3.6, 3.7) work fine. An example of a failed test is: https://ci.appveyor.com/project/davisking/dlib-1mqn9/builds/20177058/job/ah3iuh4hgg9c1la7
Note that pytest gets installed, according to the logs. But the test ends up failing with the error `The 'pytest' distribution was not found and is required by the application`. I've restarted the test a few times but the issue persists.

I see that the version of pytest changed between your successful builds and failing builds. As a test, can you specify the older/last working version (looks like 3.8.1) and try to build.

Trying 3.8 now. However, 3.10.1 works for every other version of python.
It doesn't really make any sense to me that it only fails for Python 3.5 on

Nor to me, but do you think it is specifically an AppVeyor problem?

I'm not sure. I haven't tried that specific version of python on windows
with that version of pytest. Maybe it's a pytest bug. That's certainly
