Pip install fails on ubuntu 16.04


Hi all,

Running stock ubuntu 16.04 with python 3.6 and latest drivers/everything I get this error message with “pip install odrive”

“Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement pywin32>=222 (from odrive) (from versions: )
No matching distribution found for pywin32>=222 (from odrive)”

I got the source, removed pywin32 as a dependency and it now works as expected…but why would pip or odrive think I’m on windows?



Hi Ross,

I’m running Ubuntu 16.04 LTS as well. I had the same problem. You’ll need to install Python 3 and python3-pip package through your favorite package manager like apt.

Hope this helps!



Yes, make sure you are installing with pip3 (aka pip for python3).


I’m now experiencing this error on Ubuntu 16.04 and I’ve installed pip3 (18.0) and python3 (3.5.2). Fresh stock Ubuntu VM created specifically to work with odrive.


Is there a solution for this? The same error occurs with Python3 and pip3 fresh from apt-get.
