Installing synphot

in: pip install synphot

out: syntax error

what is problem here?


I know it’s possible to install Python packages from inside an IPython terminal, but can you run that command in a terminal instead?

Would it also be possible to get the details of the syntax error?
Based on that, that it should work no problem.


Yesterday it did not work.
Today it works.
!? Dumbfounded. Cheers.

If you encounter error again, a full traceback would be very helpful. Thanks!

ok, thanks. plenty of help then.
