I'm running Mageia 7 after a clean install as a VirtualBox within Windows 7.
I added cinnamon using MCC.
I could not log into cinnamon even though it showed in the possible login environment
I tried, then, to run URPMI task-cinnamon and recieved the following error:

A requested package cannot be installed:
python3-setproctitle-1.1.10-5.mga7.x86_64 (due to unsatisfied python(abi)[== 3.6])

Please advise

The entire python stack in Cauldron is currently being rebuilt for the new version of python. You'll need to wait for this to finish.

If you are running or testing Cauldron, it is a good idea to subscribe to the dev@ml.mageia.org mailing list. Then you will get warnings about major changes like this.
