I think you are using previous version of jupyter. Try to update your setuptools and pip first then retry.

$ pip install --upgrade setuptools pip

Hope this will help.

You may need to uninstall the software. After that, again reinstall the software. If you get any error, then paste it here.

Error code 1 is defined in errno.h and means Operation not permitted.

About your error

Your setup tools do not appear to be installed. Just follow the Installation Instructions from the PyPI website.

If it's already installed, try

pip install --upgrade setuptools

If it's already up to date, check that the module ez_setup is not missing. If it is, then

pip install ez_setup

Then try again

pip install unroll

If it's still not working, maybe pip didn't install/upgrade setup_tools properly so you might want to try

easy_install -U setuptools

And again

pip install unroll

Hey, @There,
Are you getting the same error that is given in the above question?

You have an out of date version of setuptools, sorry for the inconvenience (and hard to understand error).

Simply pip install --upgrade setuptools

If it doesn't work, we can re-open and discuss. Pre-emptively closing since the issue seems clear.
