Installed Python 3.9 from Python.org
Tried installing lxml package using the command
"pip install lxml"
It complains that it is unable to do so without libxml2 (which is not a python package). I do not have the same issue with 3.8.6.

There is no Python 3.9 compatible package on PyPI yet ( https://pypi.org/project/lxml/#files ).

I guess you have to wait a bit more until there will be a new release.

Also, this is the cpython issue tracker. When you have problems with a specific package, it is best to seek help at their issue tracker. For lxml this would be https://launchpad.net/lxml

Actually, there is already an issue on their tracker about support for Python 3.9
https://bugs.launchpad.net/lxml/+bug/1892261

I suggest to close this issue here.
