I have Scipy version 0.18.2 on my RaspberryPi 3. However, I need the find_peaks() function which is only available on higher versions.

I followed this link to install scipy.

But the python3 setup.py build pauses here:

warning: #warning "Using deprecated NumPy API, disable it by " 
#warning "Using deprecated NumPy API, disable it by " \

I'm working on latest version of numpy(1.15.4).

Any other inputs on how to implement scipy's find_peaks() would also be helpful.

Thanks in advance!

    If you're using Raspbian Stretch (using RPF image) you should get 1.2 with pip3: sudo pip3 install scipy. This will install using a binary wheel from piwheels. Don't use sudo if you're in a virtual environment

  • Thanks for your response. Pip doesn't seem to work.. I am using pip behind a proxy I've tried the answer (stackoverflow.com/questions/14149422/using-pip-behind-a-proxy) with 228 upvotes . It gives me this error for any pip command. >>>TypeError: unsupported operand type(s) for -=: 'Retry' and 'int'

  • AFAIK you just need a newer version of requests/pip. I would uninstall python3-pip and then use pip.pypa.io/en/stable/installing/#installing-with-get-pip-py . Make sure to use sudo python3 get-pip.py to install pip.

  • when do sudo python3 get-pip.py .. It says "retrying" a lot of times and ends with this error --> "Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement pip (from versions: ) No matching distribution found for pip"

  • I have noticed that you have linked this question but since it got a answer posted after your question I wonder if you have checked that too? If it works, we could close this question as a duplicate. Thanks.
