pip install failing

The command pip install jacobi-motion currently fails with the following error message:

ERROR: Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement jacobi-motion (from versions: none)
ERROR: No matching distribution found for jacobi-motion

Manually specifying a version (ex: 0.0.21) raises to the same error.


  • Ubuntu 20.04.6 LTS
  • Python 3.8.10
  • pip-23.2.1

Thanks Alban!

I've just double checked this on a fresh ubuntu 20.04, but unfortunately could not reproduce this issue. It installs just fine for me:

Which architecture is your machine running on?

You can find the list of all provided Python wheels here.

Btw, pip install jacobi-motion will install the cloud version of the Jacobi motion library. For the on-prem version, you can download the Python wheels from the account page, and install the specific wheel file.

Thank you Lars,

I also tried installing a wheel and it fails too.
But it seems like the problem is only with this particular machine, as I was able to pip install on 2 other machines.
I'll try to find out what the issue is and let you know if that's relevant in any way for you.


It turns out it was an easy one! For some reason the pip version was up-to-date but setuptools wasn't.

Thanks for the quick answer.
