Influxdb_database module TypeError: __init__() got an unexpected keyword argument 'proxies'?


I have this Ansible task that used to work when my team was using a 1.X InfluxDB. We are upgrading InfluxDB to 2.X and now the task fails. Here is the task:

- name: InfluxDB | Create InfluxDB database
    database_name: "{{ cluster_name }}"
    hostname: localhost
  when: cluster_name is defined

Error message:

TypeError: __init__() got an unexpected keyword argument 'proxies'

And here is the full error it is getting with InfluxDB 2.X:

TASK [influxdb : InfluxDB | Create InfluxDB database] **************************
An exception occurred during task execution. To see the full traceback, use -vvv. 
The error was: TypeError: __init__() got an unexpected keyword argument 'proxies'

I guess you updated the Python influxdb library as well, and the version you are using is not compatible to the code in community.general.
