Installing Anaconda on Mac OS X Anaconda is a package manager, an environment manager, and Python distribution that contains a collection of many open source packages. An installation of Anaconda comes with many packages such as numpy, scikit-learn, scipy, and pandas preinstalled and is also the recommended way to install Jupyter Notebooks. This version will automatically take place instead of the OS X version (if it doesn't, just run brew link python3 - this will symlink python3 into /usr/local/bin/) to update python run brew update in the Terminal (this will update Homebrew) and then brew upgrade python3 if a new version of python3 is found by the command brew update. I you have python 2.x already installed then you can use brew upgrade python to upgrade to python 3.x. 3: had this issue as well. I navigated to the PATH location for both Python2.x and Python3.7. Updated with homebrew and hopefully the pip installer will work now. Hope this helps!
