[Distutils] Module Installation Issues

It would help if you could post the full error output (sanitizing paths if needed). But you may just need to upgrade pip (python -m install -U pip).

Knowing exactly where the syntax error is coming from will help us figure out which package has the problem. There are at least three involved here.

Subject: [Distutils] Module Installation Issues

I just recently downloaded Python 3.5 and cannot seem to install any packages like Numpy, etc.  I have tried all the instructions on the website and keep getting errors:
For example, when I type “python –m pip install Numpy” it returns  a Syntax Error. I am completely new to Python so I must be missing something here – I haven’t altered any files since installing it the other day. Do I use the Python IDLE Shell? Are there other packages I need to install first?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
