Subject [NOTICE] CloudMonkey 5.3 not starting on Ubuntu 14.10
Date Mon, 01 Dec 2014 10:42:48 GMT
Hi Andrei,

Thanks for bringing this to our notice. With Ubuntu 14.04/14.10, the
default pip has some issues. To install CloudMonkey or any package
dependent on "requests" users simply need to upgrade pip to make it work:

1. Uninstall the default pip:
    sudo apt-get remove --purge python-pip

2. Download and install latest pip from

I faced this issue too and the above worked for me. After doing the
above, retry/reinstall cloudmonkey it should work.
