[FIXED] ImportError: cannot import name 'parse_rule' from 'werkzeug.routing'

Issue

I got the following message after running my Flask project on another system.
The application ran all the time without problems:

Error: While importing 'app', an ImportError was raised:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "c:\users\User\appdata\local\programs\python\python39\lib\site-packages\flask\cli.py", line 214, in locate_app
    __import__(module_name)

ImportError: cannot import name 'parse_rule' from 'werkzeug.routing' (c:\users\User\appdata\local\programs\python\python39\lib\site-packages\werkzeug\routing\__i
nit__.py)

My requirements.txt

Flask~=2.1.2
psycopg2-binary==2.9.3
Flask-SQLAlchemy==2.5.1
flask-restx==0.5.1
qrcode~=7.3.1
PyPDF2==2.6.0
reportlab~=3.6.10
WTForms~=3.0.1
flask-bootstrap==3.3.7.1
flask-wtf==1.0.1

Solution

The solution (workaround) was that I additionally included werkzeug in the version 2.1.2 in the requirements.txt

werkzeug==2.1.2

After that I could start the Flask application.
