There are currently two versions of Python in use; Python 2 and Python 3. Python 3 is not backward compatible with Python 2. A lot of the imported modules were only available in Python 2 for quite some time, leading to a slow adoption of Python 3. However, this not really an issue anymore. Support for Python 2 will end in 2020.
