It seems like a error with the csv module - you didn't happen to make a csv.py file anywhere in your directory or path that might be interfering?

I had the same problem in PyCharm, where I created my own project and files. I solved it by changing the file name from "csv.py" to "my_csv.py". Reffered to problem on Stack Overflow. https://stackoverflow.com/questions/41061824/install-csv-package-in-pycharm/41062076#41062076?newreg=add2a0c7535848b79c6c6743da0390e8
