'pip install' step fails when I increase package version number

pip
python

#1

The error below happens every time I increase the version number in my Python app. It’s trying to uninstall the old version of my app from the cached Python environment. Clearing the cache fixes the problem, but only until the next version bump. This problem only happens in Circle. Tests run fine locally.

That doesn’t look like a full Traceback, parts seem cut off on the right side and it seems to be missing the details of the error being triggered?

Also can you include the output of pip --version
