@walwe I had a similar issue to @ammonaur, but was able to resolve it:

Python36 installed correctly and the python3.6 symlink is properly under /usr/bin. Running "sudo python3.6 -m ensurepip" gives:

"Requirement already satisfied: setuptools in /usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages (40.0.0)

Requirement already satisfied: pip in /usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages (18.0)"

But pip3.6 cannot be found and python3.6 -m pip gives:

"/usr/bin/python3.6: No module named pip.main; 'pip' is a package and cannot be directly executed"

I looked at /usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/pip and only see the _internal and _vendor folders. Compared to the corresponding py3.7 directory, it seems to be missing and which explains the error message above.

To fix: I deleted /usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/pip and /usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/pip-18.0.dist-info, then re-ran "sudo python3.6 -m ensurepip" which was successful and now pip3.6 works as well as python3.6 -m pip

I'm getting this error:

warning: building with the bundled copy of libffi is deprecated on this platform. It will not be distributed with Python 3.7 error: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/tmp/python36/src/Python-3.6.9/Modules/_ctypes/libffi' make: *** [Makefile:603: sharedmods] Error 1

I do have libffi installed. I wonder if that's normal the error is still occurring? Am I missing something? I have remove the rm _ctypes/libffi from the PKGBUILD in the mean time.

@ammonaur You can install pip3.6 using: sudo python3.6 -m ensurepip

After you can use "pip3.6 install" or "python3.6 -m pip install"

Why does the package have pip as a built-in, but without the binary? Is there a way I can install pip3.6/python3.6 -m pip using this package?

Updated, sorry. Thank you, aorth, for providing the PKGBUILD. I have my pkgbuild repository online at, so if I seem to miss updates in the future, you can also PR there.

Is this going to be updated anytime soon? Has been flagged for a long time now

Updated PKGBUILD for Python 3.6.7:

applebloom commented on 2018-10-03 12:21

The package has $srcdir references.

rixx commented on 2018-08-06 15:21

Done, thank you. This package now builds correctly alongside with Python 3.7 (and all others, presumably.

Please, remove conflicts=('python') from PKGBUILD Now Python 3.7 is arch linux default.
