Topic: YUN easy_install pip error (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic


I have been using Arduino for a while but I am new to the Yun and could use some advice on the Linux side. I am accessing the Linux side through SSH and trying to install pip but I am getting the following error:

root@Arduino:~# easy_install pip
Searching for pip
Reading http://pypi.python.org/simple/pip/
Couldn't find index page for 'pip' (maybe misspelled?)
Scanning index of all packages (this may take a while)
Reading http://pypi.python.org/simple/
No local packages or download links found for pip
error: Could not find suitable distribution for Requirement.parse('pip')

I did the following in this this order and they all worked except for pip:

opkg update

opkg install distribute

opkg install python-openssl

easy_install pip

I did search around and I found two other people who had similar errors and they resolved it by updating OpenWrt. I followed the instructions here and upgraded but the error remains the same.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Post in the correct section of the forum. There IS one specifically for the Yun.

I posted this in the Yun section at the suggestion of PaulS but it appears that it was removed?

Did this problem ever get resolved? I have the same issue.


Try this: when you configure any package install from PyPi, point to https (NOT http). PyPi made the switchover not too long ago and some packages are still using the unsecured route.
