Python-pip package

So the python-pip package has been out of date for a long time now, and I need to use this package.

The only option it seems to me is to use a python and pip installation that is completely separate from pacman. For that I would need to uninstall these packages, but since they have so many dependencies (system ones too), I am a bit stuck.

Any suggestions?

I have tried to update pip directly like this:

pip install --upgrade pip

but that didn’t work either.

As a workaround, you can use virtualenvs where you can update and install pypi packages without interfering with the system.

Probably my only option. Thanks @pobrn
