# Failed building wheel for X when using pip install

The error "Failed building wheel for X" occurs for multiple reasons:

  1. Not having the wheel package installed in the environment.
  2. Having installed packages that clash with the package we are trying to install.
  3. Having a Python version that isn't supported by the package we're trying to install.
shell
Failed building wheel for <package-name> Running setup.py clean for <package-name> Failed to build <package-name> Installing collected packages: <package-name> Running setup.py install for <package-name> ... done Successfully installed <package-name>

Open your terminal and run the following command to install wheel.

shell
pip install wheel pip3 install wheel # ๐Ÿ‘‡๏ธ if you don't have pip in your PATH environment variable python -m pip install wheel python3 -m pip install wheel py -m pip install wheel

install wheel using pip

You should also upgrade your version of pip.

Here are the commands for upgrading pip on all operating systems.

Which command works depends on your operating system and your version of Python.
shell
# ๐Ÿ‘‡๏ธ if you have pip already installed pip install --upgrade pip # ๐Ÿ‘‡๏ธ if your pip is aliased as pip3 (Python 3) pip3 install --upgrade pip # ๐Ÿ‘‡๏ธ if you don't have pip in your PATH environment variable python -m pip install --upgrade pip # ๐Ÿ‘‡๏ธ if you don't have pip in your PATH environment variable python3 -m pip install --upgrade pip # ๐Ÿ‘‡๏ธ if you have easy_install easy_install --upgrade pip # ๐Ÿ‘‡๏ธ if you get a permissions error sudo easy_install --upgrade pip # ๐Ÿ‘‡๏ธ if you get a permissions error when upgrading pip pip install --upgrade pip --user # ๐Ÿ‘‡๏ธ upgrade pip scoped to the current user (if you get permissions error) python -m pip install --user --upgrade pip python3 -m pip install --user --upgrade pip # ๐Ÿ‘‡๏ธ Installing directly from get-pip.py (MacOS and Linux) curl https://bootstrap.pypa.io/get-pip.py | python # ๐Ÿ‘‡๏ธ if you get permissions issues curl https://bootstrap.pypa.io/get-pip.py | sudo python # ๐Ÿ‘‡๏ธ alternative for Ubuntu/Debian sudo apt-get update && apt-get upgrade python-pip # ๐Ÿ‘‡๏ธ alternative for Red Hat / CentOS / Fedora sudo yum install epel-release sudo yum install python-pip sudo yum update python-pip

install pip with upgrade flag

After you upgrade pip, upgrade setuptools as well.

shell
pip install --upgrade setuptools pip3 install --upgrade setuptools # ๐Ÿ‘‡๏ธ if you don't have pip in your PATH environment variable python -m pip install --upgrade setuptools python3 -m pip install --upgrade setuptools

install setuptools with upgrade flag

After you install wheel and upgrade pip and setuptools, you should be able to run the pip install command without getting any errors.

shell
pip install requests pip3 install requests python -m pip install requests python3 -m pip install requests

If that didn't help, try to run the pip install command with the --upgrade option.

shell
pip install requests --upgrade pip3 install requests --upgrade python -m pip install requests --upgrade python3 -m pip install requests --upgrade

use upgrade flag

If the error is not resolved, try installing the package with the --no-cache-dir option to disable the cache.

shell
pip install requests --no-cache-dir pip3 install requests --no-cache-dir

use no cache dir flag when installing

If that didn't help, use the --pre option to include pre-release and development versions of the package.

shell
pip install requests --pre pip3 install requests --pre python -m pip install requests --pre python3 -m pip install requests --pre

use pre flag when installing

The --pre option makes it so pip includes pre-release and development versions of the package. By default pip only finds stable versions.

This sometimes helps because a pre-release version of the package might have a wheel available for your version of Python.

If the error is not resolved, try running the pip install command with the --no-use-pep517 option.

shell
pip install --no-use-pep517 requests pip3 install --no-use-pep517 requests python -m pip install --no-use-pep517 requests python3 -m pip install --no-use-pep517 requests

use no use pep517 flag

If the error is not resolved, download the wheel package from the pypi page of wheel by clicking on the .whl file under "Built Distribution".

Once you download the file, open your terminal in the folder where the .whl file is located and install it.

shell
pip install wheel-0.37.1-py2.py3-none-any.whl pip3 install wheel-0.37.1-py2.py3-none-any.whl python -m pip install wheel-0.37.1-py2.py3-none-any.whl python3 -m pip install wheel-0.37.1-py2.py3-none-any.whl

Make sure to specify the correct name of the .whl file as your version will likely be different.

install wheel from source

Once you install the wheel package, the error will be resolved.

If the error is not resolved, try installing the package with the --no-cache-dir option to disable the cache.

shell
pip install <package-name> --no-cache-dir pip3 install <package-name> --no-cache-dir

# Create a virtual environment

If that didn't help, try creating a virtual environment.

  1. Create a virtual environment.
  2. Activate the virtual environment.
  3. Run the pip install command with the virtual environment active.
shell
# ๐Ÿ‘‡๏ธ use correct version of Python when creating VENV python3 -m venv venv # ๐Ÿ‘‡๏ธ activate on Unix or MacOS source venv/bin/activate # ๐Ÿ‘‡๏ธ activate on Windows (cmd.exe) venv\Scripts\activate.bat # ๐Ÿ‘‡๏ธ activate on Windows (PowerShell) venv\Scripts\Activate.ps1 # ๐Ÿ‘‡๏ธ upgrade pip pip install --upgrade pip # ๐Ÿ‘‡๏ธ install the specific package in the virtual environment pip install requests

If you get an error when running the python3 -m venv venv command, try the following commands:

  • python -m venv venv
  • py -m venv venv

Make sure to use the correct command to activate your virtual environment depending on your operating system and your shell.

Your virtual environment will use the version of Python that was used to create it.

# Check if your Python version is supported by the package

You can check your Python version with the python --version command.

shell
python --version

Google for the name of the package and check if your Python version is supported by the package.

For example, if I google "requests pypi" and click on the pypi.org page, I can see the supported Python versions in the sidebar on the left, under Meta > Requires.

supported python versions by package

The screenshot shows that the package supports Python 3.7+.

If your Python version doesn't meet the requirements, the error occurs.

You can also check if the package supports your version of Python in the Download files section of the package's pypi page.

For example, cp310 in the name of a file under "Built Distributions" means Python version 3.10 is supported for the specific operating system.

If the .whl files are not available for your version of Python, try running the pip install command with the --pre option.

shell
pip install requests --pre pip3 install requests --pre python -m pip install requests --pre python3 -m pip install requests --pre py -m pip install requests --pre
Make sure to replace requests with the name of the actual package you are trying to install.

The --pre option makes it so pip includes pre-release and development versions of the package. By default pip only finds stable versions.

If that doesn't work, you have to install a Python version that is in the specified range and then run the pip install <package_name> command.

You can upgrade your Python version by downloading the installer from the official python.org website and running it.

Make sure to tick the following options if you get prompted:

  • Install launcher for all users (recommended)
  • Add Python to PATH (this adds Python to your PATH environment variable)

You can download a specific Python version that is supported by the package if the package doesn't support the latest Python version.

Different versions are available in the "Looking for a specific release" table.

install specific python version

# Try running pip install in verbose mode

If none of the suggestions helped, try running the pip install command in verbose mode.

shell
pip install requests -vvv pip3 install requests -vvv python -m pip install requests -vvv

The -v option stands for verbose mode and can be used up to 3 times.

When the pip install command is run in verbose mode, the command shows more output and how the error occurred.

To solve the error "Failed building wheel for X", make sure:

  1. You have the wheel package installed by running pip install wheel.
  2. You don't have any packages that clash with the package you're trying to install.
  3. Your version of Python is supported by the package.
