That's because it is already correctly installed.  The problem is not
with the python-ldap package, but rather with your non-standard
installation of Python (/usr/local/bin/python), which as I said I
suspect has something to do with "pycharm", with which I am

You did not correctly follow my instructions.

I said you should try:

$ /usr/bin/python -c "import ldap;print ldap.__version__"

and not just:

$ python -c "import ldap;print ldap.__version__"

And I still think pycharm is what's causing this to not just work out
of the box.  So you might want to contact them rather.
