I'm trying to start a Django project, don't know what I'm doing to be honest. I started following the tutorial. Installed python 3.6 (altough this shows 2.7, probably came with ubuntu). And then installed pip and tried to install a virtualenv and Django. Got this error:

$ sudo pip install virtualenv
The directory '/home/dutek/.cache/pip/http' or its parent directory is not owned by the current user and the cache has been disabled. Please check the permissions and owner of that directory. If executing pip with sudo, you may want sudo's -H flag.
The directory '/home/dutek/.cache/pip' or its parent directory is not owned by the current user and caching wheels has been disabled. check the permissions and owner of that directory. If executing pip with sudo, you may want sudo's -H flag.
Collecting virtualenv
Exception:

You are using pip version 8.1.2, however version 9.0.1 is available.
You should consider upgrading via the 'pip install --upgrade pip' command.

I did try to "pip install --upgrade pip" but got the same type of error.
