I'm trying install the requests, but I can't do that. I'm using Ubuntu 16.04

I tried to install using

$ sudo pip install requests

and I get the following error

Collecting requests
Exception:

My python version is the 2.7 and the pip is 8.1.1

I fixed that problem on my own. I just reinstalled the pip.

First of all I uninstalled the pip

sudo apt-get remove --purge python-pip
sudo apt-get autoremove && sudo apt-get autoclean && sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get update

after that I just reinstalled the pip

sudo apt-get install python-pip
sudo pip install requests

and it works.

  • This seems a bit intense. Maybe just sudo apt-get install --reinstall python-pip would have worked – wjandrea Dec 16 '18 at 20:39
  • i tried but I didn't work ... – Guilherme Dec 17 '18 at 2:01
