I couldn't reproduce this Can you please provide more details as of the exact steps you ran (what archive you downloaded, if you already had another version of ROS2 installed etc)? Can you also confirm that the file Lib/site-packages/ros2cli-0.5.3-py3.7.egg-info/PKG-INFO contains: Version: 0.5.3

I am also having this issue. A few key notes for my situation are that I used a virtual box running ubuntu to cross compile for my raspberry pi zero w. Once that was done, I zipped the file and transferred it out of the box before imaging a micro sd card.
