[SOLVED] Does PyPI auto update?

#1 Post by soaringowl2145 »

So I installed "python3-pip" in Buster and would like to know:

1 - Will installed pip packages will be automatically updated or not.

2 - Is there a daemon running in the background for python or pip when it is not in use?

Thanks!

No and no, respectively. But you really shouldn't use pip at all: https://xkcd.com/1987/

Python modules are trivially easy to package in Debian.
