And the question is?

Everything that follows comes directly from my crystal ball and has the 
potential to break more stuff; if you try it you do it at your own risk.

Again, most likely you have a broken python-gevent install. If you got this 
by attempting a manual install from source without the necessary build 
dependencies you can either add these and try again.

Alternatively you can remove the debris:

1 Find out the location of the gevent folder:

$ python -c 'import gevent; print gevent.__file__'

2 Remove the gevent folder (unless it's maintained by the package manager).
$ rm -r /somefolder/gevent

Now pyshark should correctly detect that gevent is not available and use a 

3 If you need gevent later use the official way to install it

$ sudo apt-get install python-gevent

in the hope that it contains a _threading module and pyshark will start 
using gevent again, this time successfully.
