Also tell us how you are installing this version.
If it is a binary installer where did you download it from?
And what was it called?

If you are using a package manager say so.

If you are trying to build from source (why?) tell us
exactly what steps you took.

There are lots of options when it comes to "installing python"
and we need to know exactly what you are doing before we can help.
