Install Python Pip
Often, the best way to install the latest version of a Python application is through the Python package management system (pip).
If you are using Debian 10 or Ubuntu 20.04, then you want to install pip3 by running the following:
sudo apt-get install python3-pip -y \ && sudo pip3 install --upgrade pip
This method is what you should use if you are using an older distro like Debian 8 or Ubuntu 16.04
sudo apt-get install python-pip -y \ && sudo pip install --upgrade pip
