    Hi Diego,

    When i try to install pyinstaller on the Linux machine i get this error:

    root@kali:~/.wine/drive_c/Python27# wine python.exe -m pip install pyinstaller
    Collecting pyinstaller
      Using cached
        Complete output from command python egg_info:
        Traceback (most recent call last):
          File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
          File "c:\users\root\temp\pip-build-w15bul\pyinstaller\", line 63
        SyntaxError: invalid syntax
    Command "python egg_info" failed with error code 1 in c:\users\root\temp\pip-build-w15bul\pyinstaller\
    You are using pip version 9.0.1, however version 20.2.1 is available.
    You should consider upgrading via the 'python -m pip install --upgrade pip' command.

    please note that I already have latest pip version :

    root@kali:~/.wine/drive_c/Python27# python -m pip install --upgrade pip
    DEPRECATION: Python 2.7 reached the end of its life on January 1st, 2020. Please upgrade your Python as Python 2.7 is no longer maintained. pip 21.0 will drop support for Python 2.7 in January 2021. More details about Python 2 support in pip can be found at
    Requirement already up-to-date: pip in /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages (20.2.1)

    I Googled the error code 1 and the suggestion was to update the setuptools and the wheel, so I ran this command:

    python -m pip install –upgrade pip setuptools wheel
    pip install –upgrade setuptools
    pip install ez_setup
    pip install unroll

    but it still doesn’t work.

    Can you help?
