I cannot get pip to work and I think that reinstalling python 3.7 might help. When I try 'sudo apt install --reinstall python3' I get an error saying there are unmet dependencies. If I specify it to be python3.7 it can't locate the package.

  • Are "unmet dependencies" packages that python3 depends on, or packages which depend on python3? – Dmitry Grigoryev Jul 3 '19 at 13:41

    What error do you get if you try to use pip or pip3? – CoderMike Jul 3 '19 at 14:32
  • yeah it says something with LibreOffice. I'm fine if that's messed up though I don't use it – Firestarter Jul 10 '19 at 13:17

sudo apt-get purge python3

sudo apt-get install python3

might do the trick :)

    Doing sudo apt update is also a good idea before reinstall. – Ingo Jul 4 '19 at 9:29
