I am new in programming language. I was trying to setup and then upgrade gcloud using python.
I used the command:
pip install --upgrade gcloud

After that it shows:

Collecting gcloud
  Downloading gcloud-0.18.3.tar.gz (454kB)
    100% |████████████████████████████████| 460kB 1.0MB/s
Requirement already up-to-date: httplib2>=0.9.1 in c:\users\bid\appdata\local\programs\python\python36-32\lib\site-packages (from gcloud)
Collecting googleapis-common-protos (from gcloud)
  Using cached googleapis-common-protos-1.5.2.tar.gz
    Complete output from command python setup.py egg_info:
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
      File "c:\users\bid\appdata\local\programs\python\python36-32\lib\site-packages\setuptools\__init__.py", line 10, in <module>
        from setuptools.extern.six.moves import filter, filterfalse, map

        from pkg_resources.extern import VendorImporter
      File "c:\users\bid\appdata\local\programs\python\python36-32\lib\site-packages\pkg_resources\__init__.py", line 3017, in <module>

      File "c:\users\bid\appdata\local\programs\python\python36-32\lib\site-packages\pkg_resources\__init__.py", line 2120, in _rebuild_mod_path

And then a error message:

 AttributeError: '_NamespacePath' object has no attribute 'sort'
Command "python setup.py egg_info" failed with error code 1 in C:\Users\bid\AppData\Local\Temp\pip-build-ppc44asr\googleapis-common-protos\

Whats is happening here can anyone help?

The error you are having becuse your setuptools may be out of date.

Try to upgrade your setuptools and please use your setup tools for your specific versions of python.

To upgrade your setuptools run the command:

pip install --upgrade setuptools

Let me know if it is working for you.
