I think this is what happens atleast. If i do:
pip show termcolor

it returns
WARNING: Package(s) not found: termcolor

Oh, okay I forgot to install it then, no problem let me just:
pip install termcolor

it gives me:
Collecting termcolor
  Using cached termcolor-1.1.0.tar.gz (3.9 kB)
  Preparing metadata (setup.py) ... done
Using legacy 'setup.py install' for termcolor, since package 'wheel' is not installed.
Installing collected packages: termcolor
  Running setup.py install for termcolor ... done
Successfully installed termcolor-1.1.0

Okay, fantastic.
pip show termcolor

still returns
WARNING: Package(s) not found: termcolor

How is this even possible? I have also checked and only 1 version of Python is installed (i even uninstalled Anaconda to be sure) but it still does this.

What I have tried:

I have tried pip install termcolor --upgrade, i have tried pip uninstall termcolor (not possible because it cannot be found but thought it was worth a try)

I know that's how it's supposed to work. But it doesn't xD

Fine, but there is nothing anyone here can do without access to your system.
