I want to install pip on the Yún which is running Linino OS but every time I execute the standard steps for opkg i.e.

# opkg update
# opkg install distribute
# okpg install python-openssl
# 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')

What is the reason behind this?

Kernel Information

Linux Arduino 3.3.8 #1 Fri Nov 14 08:57:34 CET 2014 mips GNU/Linux
  • I think you mean: python setup.py install for your last line – irishcream24 Oct 28 '18 at 18:23

Found this Arduino Forum Thread helpful.

# wget \
# easy_install pip-6.0.8.tar.gz

Apparently the PyPi Package Site is now HTTPS and hence --no-check-certificate option should be used. Also MD5 Checksum of the package needs to attached in the link in order to avoid a HTTP 404 Error



sudo wget https://pypi.python.org/simple/pip/pip-6.0.8.tar.gz
sudo tar xzvf pip-6.0.8.tar.gz
cd pip-6.0.8
python setup.py
