check your setup:
you say you have Jython 2.7.1 but the stack trace says:

  File "C:\jython2.7.0\Lib\socket.py", line 3, in <module>
    from _socket import (

But when I am running the IDE the first line says the below.

C:\jython2.7.1\bin\jython.exe C:\Users\username\.IdeaIC2017.3\config\plugins\python-ce\helpers\pydev\pydevd.py --multiproc --qt-support=auto --client --port 19898 --file C:/Users/username/eclipse-workspace/Testing/src/TEST/__init__.py

When I try to set up the 2.7.0 jython as the interpreter and install the packages I get the following error:

I just made a test on my Mac with Pycharm - works
- PyCharm uses the 2.7.0 interpreter, but my SikuliX is setup with 2.7.1

I had the problem, that the <appdata>/Sikulix/Lib folder contained Jython stuff.
I deleted the folder and ran a PythonConsole in PyCharm with these additional startup lines:
import org.sikuli.script.SikulixForJython
from sikuli import *

this restored the Lib folder.

This PythonConsole is helpful to do some quick checks or run a script.

After stopping and restarting PyCharm it worked.

In my run configuration for the project I have a pointer to sikulixapi.jar in the EnvVariables field
