Question: This is Yashikha again and thanks for helping me out with the previous issue. Now I am stuck with another error while trying to install python-pip via the yum command. Following is the complete error message.
# yum install python-pip Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux 8 - Next - x86_64 106 kB/s | 206 kB 00:01 No match for argument: python-pip Error: Unable to find a match: python-pip
I did configure the EPEL repo before installing python-pip.
# yum --enablerepo=extras install epel-release ::::::::: Upgraded: epel-release-8-15.el8.noarch Installed: epel-next-release-8-15.el8.noarch Complete!
What could be the issue?
Solution: Fix Unable to find a match: python-pip
Yashikha, the reason why you couldn’t find python-pip in the EPEL repo might be because it may not be called python-pip anymore. To find the exact name of the package, run the below command.
# yum info python*-pip Available Packages Name : python3-pip Arch : noarch Version : 9.0.3 Release : 8.el7 Size : 1.6 M Repo : base/7/x86_64 Summary : A tool for installing and managing Python3 packages URL : http://www.pip-installer.org License : MIT and Python and ASL 2.0 and BSD and ISC and LGPLv2 and MPLv2.0 : and (ASL 2.0 or BSD) Description : pip is a package management system used to install and manage : software packages written in Python. Many packages can be found in : the Python Package Index (PyPI). pip is a recursive acronym that : can stand for either "Pip Installs Packages" or "Pip Installs : Python". Name : python34-pip Arch : noarch Version : 8.1.2 Release : 14.el7 Size : 1.7 M Repo : epel/x86_64 Summary : A tool for installing and managing Python3 packages URL : http://www.pip-installer.org License : MIT and BSD and ASL 2.0 and ISC and Python and (ASL 2.0 or BSD) : and LGPLv2+ Description : Pip is a replacement for easy_install. It uses mostly the : same techniques for finding packages, so packages that were made : easy_installable should be pip-installable as well.
Now you get to know the exact package name. Install it as below:
# yum install python3-pip
