Good Morning,
please try running the script without python -E. („python3 StromPi3_Status.py“) Make sure that the script version fits your firmware. If you are unsure about your firmware version, update to the newest firmware and try again.
Best regards.

Hello jmverdi,
If you want to see your version you have to use the show-status command, however if your StromPi is out of the box there is no way to see the firmware version because the function was Implemented in Firmware Version 1.2.
You have to update your firmware to atleast version 1.2.
The latest Firmware version as of now (12.03.2019) is V1.5 and we are continuously updating it.
For instruction about updating your firmware you can use the download section.
You can download the newest version there and and the downloaded Zip File contains an instruction on how to do it.
Best Regards,
Jordan
