Package: python3-pip
Version: 9.0.1-2

Pip3 fails to locate packages, needs updating.
Trying to do that, throws an exception.

Please take a look, at the following console output:
>pip3 list -o
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/pip/", line 215, in main
    status =, args)
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/pip/commands/", line 157, in run
    packages = self.get_outdated(packages, options)
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/pip/commands/", line
168, in get_outdated
    dist for dist in self.iter_packages_latest_infos(packages, options)
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/pip/commands/", line

    if dist.latest_version > dist.parsed_version
TypeError: unorderable types: Version() > SetuptoolsVersion()
