Well, if Ubuntu aren't offering an upgrade, you can do
pip install -i https://pypi.python.org/
Or install your own copy of pip/setuptools, I guess (get-pip --user,
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.
index-url = https://pypi.python.org/simple/
$ export PIP_INDEX_URL="https://pypi.python.org/simple/"
Setuptools (easy_install) uses ~/.pydistutils.cfg :
index_url = https://pypi.python.org/simple/
Buildout uses buildout.cfg and ~/.buildout/default.cfg :
index = https://pypi.python.org/simple/
"What to do when PyPi goes down" (2010)
This URL also works as the -i/--index-url?
