How to Install pip for python 3 7 on Ubuntu 18

0 votes
I've installed python 3.7 successfully. I can install modules using pip (or pip3) but those modules are installed in Python 3.6 (Comes with ubuntu). Therefore I can't import those modules in python 3.7 (get a module not found) Python 3.7 doesn't recognize pip/pip3, so I can't install through pip/pip3 I need python 3.

I've downloaded several modules through pip install module but when I try to import them, I get a ModuleNotFoundError: No module names 'xx'

So I did some research and apparently when used pip to install, it installed in the modules in previous version of Python. Somewhere (probably a question in SO) I found a suggestion to install the module using python3.7 -m pip install module but then I get /usr/local/bin/python3.7: no module named pip.

Now I'm stuck, pip is installed, but apparently not for Python 3.7. I'm assuming that if I can install pip for Python 3.7, I can run the pip install command and get the modules I need. If that is the case, how can I install pip for python 3.7, since it's already installed?

The command you're looking for is:

python3.7 -m pip install pip

Took me a surprisingly long time to figure it out, too.
