PIP Install OpenAI not working -- Unable to locate Package

Hi All,
I have tried to apt-install or pip install openai libraries.

The libraries appear to download, but then immediately say:
Unable to locate package openai.

Can you guide me what I'm doing wrong?

I've encountered a similar issue with other Python packages in the past. Typically, by following these steps (uninstalling, upgrading, reinstalling), you can resolve the problem:

  1. Start by uninstalling the OpenAI Python Package:

    pip uninstall openai
  2. Next, upgrade pip to ensure you have the latest version:

    pip install --upgrade pip
  3. Reinstall the OpenAI Package:

    pip install openai
  4. Finally, confirm that the package is correctly installed by running:

    pip show openai
