Using popOS linux with python 2.7 and 3.7 installed, the sudo pip install awscli command will return an error with “pip not found.” Since python is native on linux, I don’t think this is a question of pip not being installed but rather a security thing? I’ve seen forum responses that using pip outside of a virtual environment is not safe, and perhaps this is why I can’t install the awscli from the linux terminal.
The amazon documentation says that another option is installing the awscli in a virtual environment which I guess means that I would have to do everything in this course within a python virtual environment. If I do this, will it make anything else in the course more challenging?
EDIT: I found out that I must use “sudo apt install” to install the programs. Not sure if this should be updated in the course material or not.
