PSA #Python developers using #Manjaro , a recent change to the 'python-pip' package adds a global /etc/pip.conf which sets the 'user' flag to 'True' and this breaks all the 'pip install' commands run within a virtualenv environment. Prefixing the 'pip install' command with PIP_USER=false is the workaround suggested by the package maintainer. More details here - https://forum.manjaro.org/t/call-for-testing-making-pip-default-to-user/100682
Ended up wasting an hour on this today 😠
It looks like this might've been reverted, at least for the time being. Today, I got a warning that the installed version of the 'python-pip' package is newer than the version in the repository when I ran 'pacman -Syu'.
