Upgrade Pip?
VeronicaVazquez (7)

So I keep getting prompted to upgrade pip by using the "install pip -- upgrade pip" command. But when I type this into the command line it doesn't seem to do anything. What should I do?

It shouldn't affect your program, this is something that we need to do. Though if you think it is breaking your code in unexpected ways, please let it know! (it shouldn't but you never know)

@timmy_i_chen im trying to make a simple blog website in python3 and the pip installer fails to get flask_sqlalchemy and causes complications with secrets

There shouldn't be any problem, as pip is the function by Python used to install external modules.
