Python Question

boto3 python 2.7 ImportError: No module named boto3 USER_BASE USER_SITE site packages doesn't exist

Why

python
is not finding boto3 when
pip
or
pip3
shows it's installed.

I'm on Mac machine. Tried pip/pip3 with / without
sudo
. Tried changing the PATH variable as well with few paths but no luck.

PATH:
/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.5/bin:/Users/arun/.sdkman/candidates/gradle/current/bin:/Users/arun/aks/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/local/bin


and

$ python -c 'import sys; print sys.path'|tr ',' '\012'
[''

'/Library/Python/2.7/site-packages/wfawsclitools-0.1-py2.7.egg'

You are using pip version 8.1.1, however version 9.0.1 is available.
You should consider upgrading via the 'pip install --upgrade pip' command.
[arun@ip-10.11.33-65 ~/aks] $ which python

>>> import boto3
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ImportError: No module named boto3
>>> ^D
[arun@ip-10.11.33-65 ~/aks] $


On the other side, if I run
python3
, it works for
import boto3
but not
import boto
.

Install like this:

python -m pip install --user boto3
