[New-bugs-announce] [issue24158] Error of the hint of upgrading pip

Codetrainee report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Codetrainee:

When first running pip built in python 3.4.3 on windows, it will notify you that you should upgrade to 6.1.1

The recommended command is 'pip install --upgrade pip'

However, if you run this command, it will uninstall pip as well as fail to upgrade pip. 

On the official site of pip, it gives the command on windows - 'python -m pip install -U pip', which runs perfectly.
