Easy Install Breaks on Install psutil task

Dear Community,

Please support me in fixing this issue. Most of the install script tasks goes fine, except when it reaches the following task. The output is also underneath.

Hope this will help.

Dear Suresh,

Thank you very much for your reply.

I have already tried that. But, still it is not working. This is the ouput of python3 -m pip install --upgrade pip

> $ python3 -m pip install --upgrade pip
> Requirement already satisfied: pip in /usr/local/lib/python3.6/site-packages (21.0.1)

One more try this Followed hitchhiker guide, error on pip install bench - #5 by J0K3R

Thanks again Suresh.

Unforutuntately, all packages and their dependencies are installed with latest versions. I am now shifting to Manual Install. I will be preparing a documentation on that.
