“However there will be no poor among you (for Yahweh will surely bless you in the land that Yahweh your God gives you for an inheritance to possess it), Bible other translations

“However there will be no poor among you.” This statement is based in the context of Israel obeying all the commands of God, which they never did. A few times in history they may have gotten close, but as a whole they never did keep all the commands of God. So Deuteronomy 15:11, that there would always be poor people in the land, is much more realistic and is in fact what happened historically in Israel.
