How to install
pip in Debian Wheezy?
I've found many advises
apt-get install python-pip but the result is
"Unable to locate package python-pip"
pip available in Debian Wheezy? I'm using
apt-get update might seem to help you, I recommend strongly against using pip installed from the Wheeze repository with
apt-get install python-pip:
pipis at version 1.1 while the current version is > 9.0
piphas known security problems when used to download packages
apt-getpulls in some perl modules for whatever reason
Unless you are running python2.4 or so that is still supported by pip 1.1 (and which you should not use anyway) you should follow the installation instructions on the pip documentation page to securely download
pip (don't use the insecure
pip install --upgrade pip with the 1.1 version, and certainly don't install any packages with
sudo pip ... with that version)
If you already have made the mistake of installing pip version 1.1, immediately do:
sudo apt-get remove python-pip
wget https://bootstrap.pypa.io/get-pip.py python get-pip.py
(for any of the python versions you have installed).
Python2 versions starting with 2.7.9 and Python3 version starting with 3.4 have pip included by default.
try apt-get update. I see it in debian wheezy:

I had the same issue on Debian "jessie", this worked for me:
sudo apt-get remove python* sudo aptitude install python-pip
