This can be a frustrating feeling especially because there isn’t a clear reason why your installation is failing. This is the reason I put up this brief article to help.

pip3 install --upgrade --user pip
If that doesn’t seem to save the day, run the following command:
pip3 install --user "setuptools<45"
