many thanks, Peter
I could install the newest version of python 3.6 without
any problems but I need python 2.7 for tutorial purposes.

I had that problem and ended up using install python3 instead of 3.6 . I do not think that was the best answer as now python3 defaults to 3.5.4 and not 3.6! frustrating. Its suppose to install and default to the newest version you have! but it works. also I remember that it did install 2.7 which for backward compatible issues is necessary I guess?

I think your problem is baked in the cake and we will have to wait till newer versions come out. And as they say "Waiting is the hardest part!"
