Can't install virtual interpreter in PyCharm in Linux
I had to install it. This was fresh Kubuntu 18.04 install, obviously, without this needed package.
sudo apt-get install python3-distutils
After that I restarted PyCharm and creating virtual project interpreter was successful.
If @Hrvoje T's answer did not work (it did not work for me) then try this:
Run this command and you should be able to install the packaging tools in Pycharm:
sudo apt install python3-pip
python-pip if you are using the Python3 interpreter.
Neither @Hrvoje T and @hyukkyulee worked for me since I had already installed those packages. Uninstalling and reinstalling didn't solve the issue as well.
I just upgraded my system to Ubuntu 19.10 and I noticed that they had upgrade the python interpreter to 3.7. PyCharm however was generating the venv interpreter based to its previous one (python 3.6). By changing the
base interpreter from
New Interpreter block I solved this issue.
