It looks from the error that buyeragents[i][j]
is a sequence, while you expect it to be a number.
Most likely, this is *not* due to your change of
NumPy version, but rather to some change you have
made in the descriptionof buyeragents.

PS Is this your own program for finding Nash equilibrium?
If not, which one are you using?
