Issues with my station

My station 187 seems to be having issues. While trying to update, I keep getting a pip update warning. When I try to update pip, it says it was successful but then immediately gives me the same update warning:

pi@satnogs-187:~ $ /var/lib/satnogs/bin/python3 -m pip install --upgrade pip
Defaulting to user installation because normal site-packages is not writeable
Looking in indexes:,
Collecting pip
  Using cached pip-20.2.4-py2.py3-none-any.whl (1.5 MB)
Installing collected packages: pip
Successfully installed pip-20.2.4
WARNING: You are using pip version 20.2.3; however, version 20.2.4 is available.
You should consider upgrading via the '/var/lib/satnogs/bin/python3 -m pip install --upgrade pip' command.`

Is there a reason why this is happening? Any reason why my station isn’t working? I log in and run “top” and it doesn’t show the client running… :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

Looks like my update may have solved my station issue (latest SO-50 pass looks good). Still curious about the pip install, though.

You don’t need to upgrade pip. The command you typed upgraded it only for pi user. That’s why you keep seeing the same warning in Ansible.
