Python pip install with --system failing when compiling on submission


Just wanted to post this here for notification.
Will try again as per the “Rust bot fails to compile” thread
Given README said to use the --system flag. Rechecked the docs/repo and this remains the same.

== Contents of my
#!/bin/bash python3.6 -m pip install --system --target . scipy

== Error given
Possible errors running stdout output as follows:
End of stdout. stderr as follows:
/usr/bin/python3.6 -m pip install [options] [package-index-options] …
/usr/bin/python3.6 -m pip install [options] -r [package-index-options] …
/usr/bin/python3.6 -m pip install [options] [-e] …
/usr/bin/python3.6 -m pip install [options] [-e] …
/usr/bin/python3.6 -m pip install [options] <archive url/path> …

no such option: --system
End of output.


This is what I do:


python3.6 -m pip install --user -r requirements.txt

with a standard pip requirements.txt listing packages and versions


Thanks. I’ve just been following their instructions but I’ll probably end up trying that. Doesn’t seem to work when I try to submit again with the same

From the README:

  • For Python, you may install packages using pip, but you may not install to the global package directory. Instead, install packages as follows: python3.6 -m pip install --system --target . numpy
