Hi @reddy! 

According to the Python Documentation, Error code 1 means that the operation you are trying to do is not permitted. Looking at your error log, it seems like the problem is with your setuptools (possibly it is not installed or is out-of-date). To solve this error, run the following command:

pip install --upgrade setuptools

This should solve the error.
