TensorFlow not found using pip


I'm trying to install TensorFlow using pip:

$ pip install tensorflow --user
Collecting tensorflow
Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement tensorflow (from versions: )
No matching distribution found for tensorflow

What am I doing wrong? So far I've used Python and pip with no issues.

The Best Answer is


I found this to finally work.

python3 -m pip install --upgrade https://storage.googleapis.com/tensorflow/mac/cpu/tensorflow-1.12.0-py3-none-any.whl

Edit 1: This was tested on Windows (8, 8.1, 10), Mac and Linux. Change python3 to python according to your configuration. Change py3 to py2 in the url if you are using Python 2.x.

Edit 2: A list of different versions if someone needs: https://storage.googleapis.com/tensorflow

Edit 3: A list of urls for the available wheel packages is available here: https://www.tensorflow.org/install/pip#package-location

You need a 64-bit version of Python and in your case are using a 32-bit version. As of now Tensorflow only supports 64-bit versions of Python 3.5.x and 3.8.x on Windows. See the install docs to see what is currently supported

To check which version of Python you are running, type python or python3 to start the interpreter, and then type import struct;print(struct.calcsize("P") * 8) and that will print either 32 or 64 to tell you which bit version of Python you are running.

From comments:

To download a different version of Python for Windows, go to python.org/downloads/windows and scroll down until you see the version you want that ends in a "64". That will be the 64 bit version that should work with tensorflow
