Welcome @Azx Happy you are here

Seems to be an issue with pip, wheel, setuptools

You need to do a clean installation by restoring to an earlier snapshot when you first leased server or straight up reinstall the os

Kindly post the results of this command before you install

$ python --version

I got the same error, installed python 3.9, change the version, command output
python3 -V
Python 3.9.13
any idea how to solve?

Hello @troy

I do not understand this statement. What do you get when you run python3 -V ?

python3 -V
Python 3.9.13
