How to update/upgrade a package using pip?


The way is

pip install <package_name> --upgrade

or in short

pip install <package_name> -U

Using sudo will ask to enter your root password to confirm the action, but although common, is considered unsafe.

If you do not have a root password (if you are not the admin) you should probably work with virtualenv.

You can also use the user flag to install it on this user only.

pip install <package_name> --upgrade --user


For a non-specific package and a more general solution, you can check out pip-review. A tool that checks what packages could/should be updated.

To install:

$ pip install pip-review

Then run:

$ pip-review --interactiverequests==0.14.0 is available (you have 0.13.2)Upgrade now? [Y]es, [N]o, [A]ll, [Q]uit y


use this code in teminal :

python -m pip install --upgrade PAKAGE_NAME #instead of PAKAGE_NAME
