Confused with pip upgrade


I am running Ubuntu 16.10 with Anaconda installed and am attempting to update pip using the command line
Quote:
sudo pip install --upgrade pip
which doesn't seem to work at all .

I have also tried

Quote:
pip install --upgrade pip
(output below).

beyond that I have tried in an attempt to change the permissions on that directory.
Quote:
sudo find /home/ptahx/anaconda3 -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \;
I'm at a loss as to what to attempt next, I've tried reading up on it but haven't had much luck beyond what I have listed above. Any ideas or help would be appreciated.

Cheers!
newbie - PtahX

You are using pip version 8.1.2, however version 9.0.1 is available.
You should consider upgrading via the 'pip install --upgrade pip' command.

Let us know.

What is meant by "doesn't seem to work"?
If you run it twice, it spews really nasty looking Warnings.
Just means "current" AFAICT.

Stop changing perms/ownership until you get this resolved is my advice.
Shouldn't have to delete nothing either.

Smile Solved :)

Appreciate the time from all of you! I will stop messing with permissions as recommended so running pip (without sudo) shows pip as being up to date --

in response to your questions:
#What is meant by "doesn't seem to work"?

You are using pip version 8.1.2, however version 9.0.1 is available.
You should consider upgrading via the 'pip install --upgrade pip' command. but It is as of this mornig no longer giving me this warning for some reason. Probably you're correct in I entered the command too many times

below is the result - Thanks again for all your help

Quote:
ptahx@PtahXGamer:~$ sudo pip install --upgrade pip
sudo: pip: command not found

ptahx@PtahXGamer:~$ pip install --upgrade pip
Requirement already up-to-date: pip in ./.local/lib/python3.5/site-packages
ptahx@PtahXGamer:~$
