Can anyone tell me what the difference between installing a python module using pip3 install "something" and sudo apt install "something"? Eg: sudo apt install python3-sklearn and pip3 install scipy --user

    sudo apt install tells the operating system to install apps/programs. pip3 doesn't relate to the operating system, but is a package installer for python. – guiverc Nov 25 '17 at 1:31

The apt install downloads and installs applications for the operating system.

pip3 on the other hand installs a module for python, and not the operating system
