psycopg2: AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'extras'

In my code I use the DictCursor from psycopg2.extras like this

    dict_cur = conn.cursor(cursor_factory=psycopg2.extras.DictCursor)

However, all of the sudden I get the following error when I load the cursor:

    AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'extras'

Maybe something is dorked in my installation but I have no clue where to start looking. I made some updates with pip, but as far as I know no dependencies of psycopg2.

You need to explicitly import psycopg2.extras:

    import psycopg2.extras
