When trying to install the PEDL command line interface, I encounter this distutils error

Uninstalling a distutils installed project (...) has been deprecated and will be removed in a future version. This is due to the fact that uninstalling a distutils project will only partially uninstall the project.

If a Python library has previously been installed in your environment with distutils or conda, pip may not be able to upgrade or downgrade the library to the version required by PEDL. There are two recommended solutions:

  1. Install PEDL command line interface into a fresh virtualenv with no previous Python packages installed.

  2. Use --ignore-installed with pip to force overwriting the library version(s).

pip install --ignore-installed<VERSION>-py35.py36.py37-none-any.whl
