This is used to install Python’s needed packages. Sometimes, the Pip packages will install slowly. 

It is possible to install/replace Python packages on different repositories rather than the default one like any other Linux distribution repositories. This article will discuss how to adjust the replaced Python repository, which will resolve the delay issues.

  • Create a config file for the Pip and adjust the replaced repository’s settings on it. 
  • To avoid any change in settings, use the replaced repository separately to receive each package.
