I managed to install it. I just let it run there for maybe an hour and it works!
Thanks for this amazing program 5/5

I’m glad you managed to install it. Perhaps at the time PyQt5 was downloading, the Internet connection was slow, or else there was a problem with the server PyQt5 was hosted on? That might explain the long delay.
