[IPython-dev] Can't install IPython 3.0, can't reinstall IPython 2.4

I tried to upgrade to IPython 3 by running
$ pip3 install “ipython[notebook]” --upgrade
but the install fails with a message that says "AttributeError: _DistInfoDistribution__dep_map”.
Thinking I might try doing a clean install I uninstalled the previous version and ran “pip3 install” again but got the same result.
I tried to revert to the old version by downloading ipython-rel-2.4.1.tar.gz from GitHub, but that’s also giving me an error message:
$ python3 setup.py install
AssertionError: Missing package data: IPython/html/static/components/backbone/backbone-min.js
Any suggestions for how to get IPython (either version) running?
I use Python 3.4.2 running on Mac OS X 10.10.2.
