I have a ubuntu server.(10.04)

I don't install requests module. I try pip and other methods. Usually ;

$ sudo pip install requests 

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/lib/python3.1/dist-packages/pip-1.5.5-py3.1.egg/pip/_vendor/requests/packages/urllib3/packages/ssl_match_hostname/__init__.py", line 3, in <module>
    from ssl import CertificateError, match_hostname
ImportError: cannot import name CertificateError

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

ImportError: No module named _implementation

I guess I have already setup pip 3.1. But following

$ pip -V

Then I see same problem. How to install requests module for Python 3.1 ubuntu server 10.04?

I really REALLY highly extremely recommend and ask that you update yourself to 14.04 where you will find less python issues (A lot less) than staying with a 4 year old version of Ubuntu. –  Luis Alvarado Jul 25 at 1:38
