Python3 Pip3 Upgrade Error

Shit happen. I am using Ubuntu 14.04 with Python 3.5. Actually with pip3 version 10 or something. I forgot.

I try to install pytest. I read that I need to upgrade the pip3 to version 20. So I id.

#sudo pip install --upgrade

It worked nice. But when I check the version with pip –V, it went wrong.

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/home/myuser/.local/bin/pip", line 7, in <module>
from pip._internal import main
ImportError: No module named 'pip._internal'

Or somewhere from line number xx. It frustated me. Then I found this in It is said about the version of the python3 I have. So re-install it must be done by this

#python3 --force-reinstall

Another forum suggested this, that is not working in 3.5, because it run in 3.6


When the pip is success, it will give the right result when runing pip3 –V

pip 20.3.4 from /home/sugi/.local/lib/python3.5/site-packages/pip (python 3.5)
