I have python 3.6 installed in a virtual environment on Mint 18. Today I
wanted to use pip and got this error when I tried to use it.
(env36) jfb at jims-mint18 ~ $ pip help
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/home/jfb/EVs/env36/bin/pip", line 7, in <module>
from pip import main

from pip.utils import get_installed_distributions, get_prog
line 23, in <module>
from pip.locations import (
9, in <module>
from distutils import sysconfig
ImportError: cannot import name 'sysconfig'
I searched for sysconfig and found this:
The results seem to be the same as when I searched a python 3.5 virtual
environment I have setup.
It has worked in the past as I have installed pylint and pykeyboard with
it. As I type this I just remembered Mint updated python 3.6 earlier today.
So now I suspect the update is involved. Has anyone else experienced
this and know how to fix it?
