I have a Python program that uses YAML. I attempted to install it on a new server using pip install yaml and it returns the following:

$ sudo pip install yaml
Downloading/unpacking yaml
  Could not find any downloads that satisfy the requirement yaml
No distributions at all found for yaml
Storing complete log in /home/pa/.pip/pip.log

Hello @kartik,

You could try the search feature in pip:

$ pip search yaml

which looks for packages in PyPI with yaml in the short description that reveals various packages including PyYaml, yamltools, and PySyck, among others . 

Now you know a specific package name you can install it:

$ pip install pyyaml

If you want to install python yaml system-wide in linux, you can also use a package manager, like aptitude or yum:

$ sudo apt-get install python-yaml
$ sudo yum install python-yaml

Thank You!!
