In the meantime, I've checked all python folders - no uwsgi found. 
Checked /var/cache/pacman/pkg - the package has obviously been 
downloaded on Jan, 7th, but it's not found when I'm looking for it with 
pacman. Probably sth. went wrong, then. I remember I had a problem with 
the power supply some days ago, probably this was at the same time as I 
tried to install the uwsgi package; package database may miss the 
required entry.

Kind regards
