pip in virtual environment is asking for username and password

I am attempting to do a pip in an active virtual environment as such

pip install -i https://update.synapse-wireless.com/pypi snapconnect

Downloading/unpacking snapconnect
User for update.synapse-wireless.com: ??
Password: ??
Real name of requirement snapconnect is snapconnect
Could not find any downloads that satisfy the requirement snapconnect
No distributions at all found for snapconnect
Storing complete log in /root/.pip/pip.log


Why is it asking me for a user name and password ? Which username and password does it expect ? I am currently ssh into the machine

Answer

Going across the Synapse-wireless forums post, it says to:

  1. Update your pip:

    pip install --upgrade pip
    
  2. Install snapconnect:

    pip install --extra-index-url https://update.synapse-wireless.com/pypi snapconnect
