Hello. I have Python 3.6 and Python 3.10 installed. I would like to create a standalone 3.10 environment (I wouldn’t mind installing 3.11), but if I write

python -m venv miapi-env

the system returns me

-bash: python: command not found

Can someone help me? Thanks in advance.

if I write

whereis python

I get the answer:

python: /usr/bin/python3.6 /usr/bin/python3.6m /usr/bin/python /usr/lib/python3.6 /usr/lib64/python3.6 /usr/local/bin/python3.10 /usr/local/bin/python3.10-config /usr/local/lib/python3.10 /usr/include/python3.6m /usr/share/man/man1/python.1.gz

I previously ran

sudo update-alternatives --config python3

with the following result:

There are 2 programs which provide 'python3'.

  Selection    Command
*  1           /usr/bin/python3.6
 + 2           /usr/bin/python3.10

Enter to keep the current selection[+], or type selection number: 2

The solution to the problem is that I had to activate the new created environment:

source bin/activate
