I’ve got Python 3.8 on my machine, and recently I got a note that my pip version was old. I tried to upgrade PIP recently with this command:
c:\python38\python.exe -m pip install --upgrade pip
This resulted in an error. When I got the error, which I didn’t save, I tried again from an admin console, but got this:
# c:\python38\python.exe -m pip install --upgrade pip
c:\python38\python.exe: No module named pip
That is frustrating. In searching around, I found an issue that a broken upgrade from Windows may cause Pip to get lost. As a result, I need to get pip reinstalled. This post shows how to get this, with a quick curl and python script execution.

That worked, and allowed me to do what I wanted, which was get the tweepy module.
Now to do a little Python work.
