pip install AttributeError: _DistInfoDistribution__dep_map

  • A+

I'm trying to spin up an nvidia-docker (2.0) container in Ubuntu 16.04 running Conda with a few python libraries (GPU-enabled tensorflow, opencv, and gdal) and their various dependencies.

General explanation of the problem

I have a few libraries that I need to install using pip within that environment (e.g. tensorflow-gpu 1.10.0 and a couple of other custom libraries), but anytime I try to install a package using pip either in my Dockerfile or after, I get the following error:

This same error occurs if I try to install other packages using pip instead of conda install (others I've tried are setuptools, h5py, and several more I can't remember)


Here's the Dockerfile used to generate this, up to where the error is thrown (while installing tensorflow):

The last RUN command throws the error.

Things I've tried:

  • Different versions of pip (10.0.1 and 18.0)
  • pip upgrade pip or conda upgrade pip (trying to update pip this way throws the same error)
  • updating setuptools (throws the same error if I try to do it with pip)
  • I've checked to make sure that the correct pip is being used by prepending echo $(which pip) && before my pip install commands - it returns the virtual environment's pip.

I would just install everything using conda and ignore it, but there are a couple of libraries internal to my group which aren't available for conda.


You should downgrade your version of testpath:

conda install 'testpath<0.4'
