after a system updates I having troubles with a python based Apps The Updater-manager doesn't download the updates packages, and I realized this python trobles because I use flexget for RSS downloading, which is Python based, and when I run it it return:

~$ flexget
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/bin/flexget", line 5, in <module>
    from pkg_resources import load_entry_point
ImportError: No module named pkg_resources

if I run pip, a Python script, it returns:

$ sudo pip install flexget
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/pip", line 5, in <module>
    from pkg_resources import load_entry_point
ImportError: No module named pkg_resources

everything points to this line: "from pkg_resources import load_entry_point"

in flexget I found this: http://flexget.com/wiki/PipProblems

but reinstalling Python didn't solved the trouble how could it be fixed
