I encountered the following error when installing imgaug using Python2.7: 

root@user-desktop:~/samples# pip2 install imgaug

ERROR: Package 'imageio' requires a different Python: 2.7.17 not in '>=3.5' 

Check the version of imageio  and found the problem.

imageio 2.8.0
pip install imageio==2.8.0

Can only run on Python 3.5+

imageio 2.6.1
pip install imageio==2.6.1

Can run on Python 2.7 and 3.4+


Install 2.6.1 or an earlier version. The default version cannot be installed.
