google cloud bigquery import failing because "ImportError: cannot import name 'client_pb2' from 'google.api'"

I'm trying to import bigquery from, but it's failing because there's a missing dependency. I'm using Python 3.7.1.

Here is the error I'm getting:

Python 3.7.1 (default, Dec 14 2018, 13:28:58) 
[Clang 4.0.1 (tags/RELEASE_401/final)] :: Anaconda, Inc. on darwin
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

>>> from import bigquery

ImportError: cannot import name 'client_pb2' from 'google.api' (/anaconda3/lib/python3.7/site-packages/google/api/

I've tried upgrading, and uninstalling and reinstalling the "google-cloud-bigquery" and "google-api-python-client" libraries, but this error continues to occur.

I'm not sure how to resolve this error or how to debug it further. I thought it may have been my version of the package, but I haven't been able to replicate this issue on other computers. Is it possible this is occurring because of my version of Python, or because it's installed through Anaconda?


Solution is there - upgrade googleapis-common-protos
