This is probably a result of a left over build directory, take a look at
/tmp/pip_build_<user> I believe is where this would be. Most likely if you
delete that and then re-run the command it'll work. There is an upstream bug
here: https://github.com/pypa/pip/issues/1964, which I fixed a week ago but
it has not yet been released.
