What my terminal looks like at the moment...

terminal appearance

I have no idea what the terminal message means because I'm still new to Ubuntu but I searched for it and have already tried aliasing Python for Python3...

  • Can you be more specific? How did you alias Python for Python 3?

    Please don't post photos of text. Copy-paste the text, then use the formatting tools to make the formatting work.

    Are you trying to install Pandas via Pip for Python 2 (pip) or Python 3 (pip3)? In any case please don't make python refer to Python 3! Jun 1, 2017 at 9:28

I did this:

sudo apt-get install python3-pandas

But also needed others like this:

sudo python3 -m pip install --upgrade numexpr 

Whatever you do, do not uninstall or modify default python, python2 or python3. System uses python and changes will totally break Ubuntu.


This might be as simple as: sudo pip install pandas

Or depending on how pip is configured: python -m pip install --user pandas
