I found the macOS does not shipped with pip
Try to install using Homebrew
brew install pip
Then the error happend:

In actual, pip installed with Python. But the Python 2.7.10 shipped with macOS.

The release is out of the date from the official current Python release. But it is considered the stable version, I didn’t update it to Python 3.x

Let’s try another way to install pip.
very easy, aka easy_install
Open ur terminal:

sudo easy_install pip

the system will request for authorization.

it worked!
