OS: Ubuntu-Mate 18.04
Platform: Raspberry Pi 3B
Python versions: 2.7 and 3.5, 3.6, and 3.7
I am attempting to run the latest Ubuntu-Mate 18.04 release on my RPi 3B that has installed successfully. However, there is a problem with the Python and pip versions that were installed or upgraded. I've searched for solutions and tried different suggestions but I've ended up with import problems due to the different Python and pip versions installed/upgraded. I tried to upgrade Python to 3.7 but that failed to pass the tests and eventually aborted. I'm currently running 3.5 because that's what opencv built to support.
I also found that there is a bug reported, see link, that I don't have an account to logon but thought it might be relevant to my problems. For now, Python 2 and 3 work as long as I'm not root or sudo. I would like to cleanup both Python and pip for the future. I need these to support opencv (cv2), kivy, and nodejs.
Outside of this problem, Ubuntu-Mate 16.04 and 18.04 works great on RPi 2 and 3B for my tests. Thank you in advance for any suggestions.
