Well, if Ubuntu aren't offering an upgrade, you can do
pip install -i https://pypi.python.org/simple/ ...
Or install your own copy of pip/setuptools, I guess (get-pip --user, see https://pip.pypa.io/en/stable/installing/#installing-with-get-pip-py). Paul
Does this upgrade system pip, regardless of the package checksums:
$ sudo pip install -i https://pypi.python.org/simple/ -U pip setuptools
If that doesn't work (or **isn't advisable because `sudo pip` is dangerous**), you can also configure the index URL with a config file or an environment variable:
https://pip.pypa.io/en/latest/user_guide/#config-file lists the paths for Windows, MacOS, and Linux.
/etc/pip.conf ~/.pip/pip.conf $VIRTUAL_ENV/pip.conf
index-url = https://pypi.python.org/simple/ ```
$ export PIP_INDEX_URL="https://pypi.python.org/simple/"
Setuptools (easy_install) uses ~/.pydistutils.cfg :
``` [easy_install] index_url = https://pypi.python.org/simple/ ```
Buildout uses buildout.cfg and ~/.buildout/default.cfg :
``` [buildout] index = https://pypi.python.org/simple/ ```

This URL also works as the -i/--index-url?
