Install AWSCLI on Mac OS X El Capitan (python error solution)

So you installed the new OS X El Capitan in your MacBook. Then you tried to install AWSCLI... and it did not worked, right?

Probably you got the following error message:

sudo -H pip2.7 install awscli
Collecting awscli
Installing collected packages: six, python-dateutil, docutils, botocore, awscli
 Found existing installation: six 1.4.1
   DEPRECATION: Uninstalling a distutils installed project (six) has been deprecated and will be removed in a future version. This is due to the fact that uninstalling a distutils project will only partially uninstall the project.
   Uninstalling six-1.4.1:
Traceback (most recent call last):

How to fix it?

1) Install brew (if not installed):
ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"

2) Install xcode:
xcode-select --install

3) Reinstall python with brew:
brew reinstall python

4) Reinstall the failing package (in this case six-1.4.1):
sudo pip install -U six

5) And finally install the AWSCLI:
sudo -H pip install awscli

This fix worked for me perfectly and now I can start working with the awscli (see my other blogs to know how to setup the cli in your MAC).

Um comentário:

  1. You can avoid install a new version of python and simply enter the following command:
    pip install awscli --ignore-installed six
