You are using pip version 8.1.1, however version 9.0.1 is available.
You should consider upgrading via the 'pip install --upgrade pip' command.


Checking online it looks like some issue with setuptools vs distutils but my knowledge is limited here. Still looking for options or workarounds. Python version is 2.7.11
