How Do You Troubleshoot the Problem “ImportError: Entry Point (‘console_scripts’, ‘Parquet’) Not Found”?

Problem scenario
You are trying to run Apache Parquet commands.  But each command gives this error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/bin/parquet", line 11, in <module>
    load_entry_point('parquet==1.2', 'console_scripts', 'parquet')()
  File "/home/ubuntu/.local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/", line 570, in load_entry_point
    return get_distribution(dist).load_entry_point(group, name)
  File "/home/ubuntu/.local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/", line 2750, in load_entry_point
    raise ImportError("Entry point %r not found" % ((group, name),))
ImportError: Entry point ('console_scripts', 'parquet') not found

How do you fix this problem?

1.  Remove pip  (e.g., with Ubuntu run "sudo apt-get remove python-pip")

2.  Reinstall pip (e.g., with Ubuntu run "sudo apt-get install python-pip")

3.  Upgrade pip (e.g., with Ubuntu run "sudo easy_install --upgrade pip")
