We've installed the prerequisites for DataDownloaded and it says they're 
installed when I run Build installdeps, but I now get this error message 
when I try to buld DataDownloader. What do I need to install now?

Could not get valid metadata. Error is: Invalid metadata structure. 
Errors: Missing mandatory field, 'abstract' (abstract) [Validation:
