Can you check in the buffer where you have the python code what command
C-c RET is bound to?
With C-h k C-c RET

Shell command succeeded with no output suggests that is has a different
binding than the standard one in python-mode.

Did you happen to name your file 'test' or 'test.py?

C-c RET does an import and 'import test' imports a standard module test.
