 how to get pip to uninstall packages
#1
i am getting errors like these:
Output:
Cannot uninstall 'apturl'. It is a distutils installed project and thus we cannot accurately determine which files belong to it which would lead to only a partial uninstall. Cannot uninstall 'bottle'. It is a distutils installed project and thus we cannot accurately determine which files belong to it which would lead to only a partial uninstall. Cannot uninstall 'Brlapi'. It is a distutils installed project and thus we cannot accurately determine which files belong to it which would lead to only a partial uninstall. Cannot uninstall 'command-not-found'. It is a distutils installed project and thus we cannot accurately determine which files belong to it which would lead to only a partial uninstall. Cannot uninstall 'docutils'. It is a distutils installed project and thus we cannot accurately determine which files belong to it which would lead to only a partial uninstall. Cannot uninstall 'fail2ban'. It is a distutils installed project and thus we cannot accurately determine which files belong to it which would lead to only a partial uninstall. Cannot uninstall 'louis'. It is a distutils installed project and thus we cannot accurately determine which files belong to it which would lead to only a partial uninstall. Cannot uninstall 'onboard'. It is a distutils installed project and thus we cannot accurately determine which files belong to it which would lead to only a partial uninstall.
there are many more when i feed its list of packages to pip uninstall commands.

and when i install Ubuntu package python3-pip then do pip3 install --upgrade pip it acts like this:
Output:
Collecting pip Using cached https://files.pythonhosted.org/packages/5f/25/e52d3f31441505a5f3af41213346e5b6c221c9e086a166f3703d2ddaf940/pip-18.0-py2.py3-none-any.whl Installing collected packages: pip Found existing installation: pip 8.1.1 Not uninstalling pip at /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages, outside environment /usr Successfully installed pip-18.0
apparently it leaves both versions installed.

does anyone have the direct path to the tarball (not a page with a link as that seems to not show up, right)?
