since the system keeps reminding me to update the pip version:
WARNING: You are using pip version 20.3.3; however, version 21.1.3 is available. You should consider upgrading via the 'e:\project\fluidiml\venv\scripts\python.exe -m pip install --upgrade pip' command.
I did the upgrading with this command:
pip install --upgrade pip
then got this error prompt:
ERROR: Could not install packages due to an EnvironmentError: [WinError 5] Access is denied: 'e:\\project\\fluidiml\\venv\\scripts\\pip.exe' Consider using the `--user` option or check the permissions.
Now we have a new problem to solve, after googling for a while, I found this solution:
python -m pip install --user --upgrade pip
Some say by adding a
--user and it will be OK. But by running this we got the second problem, see bellow.
the prompt says there's no pip anymore!
(venv) E:\project\FluidIML>python -m pip install --user --upgrade pip E:\project\FluidIML\venv\Scripts\python.exe: No module named pip
before updating, run
python -m ensurepip first:
python -m ensurepip python -m pip install --user --upgrade pip
and then pip will come back and be updated normally.
