python2 update required
|Reported by:||ndawson||Owned by:|
The current version of Python 2 in osgeo4w (2.7.4) is no longer compatible with the pip repository - trying to run pip install under osgeo4w python results in errors "SNIMissingWarning: An HTTPS request has been made, but the SNI (Subject Name Indication) extension to TLS is not available on this platform." and "Could not fetch URL https://pypi.python.org/simple/pint/: There was a problem confirming the ssl certificate: [Errno 1] _ssl.c:504: error:1407742E:SSL routines:SSL23_GET_SERVER_HELLO:tlsv1 alert protocol version - skipping Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement pint (from versions: )"
As a result it's no longer possible to install Python2 packages using pip on osgeo4w. There's no reliable workarounds which users can do to avoid this - the only solution is to update the Python library to a more recent version.
