On a clean install of Linux Mint 18.3 I ran the following commands through the terminal:
sudo apt install python-pip pip install install --upgrade pip pip install future pip install six
Now when I run
pip install <package name> or
sudo pip install <package name> neither works. Generally I'll get an error message that looks like this:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/pip", line 9, in <module> from pip import main ImportError: cannot import name main
I think it was the
pip install install --upgrade pip command that broke everything but yeah this was a terrible idea and I've given up on what I was trying to. All I want now it to return my system python to it's factory setting without having to completely reinstall Linux Mint. Is that possible?
