How To Install Python and PIP on Fedora 38

Install Python and PIP on Fedora 38

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Python and PIP on Fedora 38. For those of you who didn’t know, Python is a popular, open-source programming language used by developers all over the world. It is versatile, easy to learn, and has a wide range of applications. Python can be used for web development, data analysis, artificial intelligence, and many other tasks. If you’re a Fedora 38 user and want to start coding with Python, you’ll need to install Python and its package manager, PIP.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of Python and PIP on a Fedora 38.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Fedora 38.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • An active internet connection. You’ll need an internet connection to download the necessary packages and dependencies for Python.
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.

Install Python and PIP on Fedora 38

Step 1. Before proceeding, update your Fedora operating system to make sure all existing packages are up to date. Use this command to update the server packages:

sudo dnf install epel-release
sudo dnf update

Step 2. Installing Python on Fedora 38.

There are several ways to install Python on Fedora 38, but the easiest and most straightforward method is to use the DNF package manager. Now install Python using the following command below:

sudo dnf install python3

Step 3. Installing PIP on Fedora 38.

PIP is a package management system used to install and manage software packages written in Python. It is a powerful tool that makes it easy to install and manage Python libraries and packages. Now install PIP by running the following command below:

sudo dnf install python3-pip

Step 4. Verify Python and PIP Installation.

To verify that Python and PIP are installed correctly, you can run the following commands in the terminal:

python3 --version

This will display the version of Python 3 installed on your system:

pip3 --version
