Trouble importing python-packages


I’m having trouble installing setuptools, either via the or within python-packages:

Running cmake-py.cpp produces the following:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/snap/cmake-py/x1/bin/hello_zh", line 5, in <module>
    from pkg_resources import load_entry_point
ImportError: No module named 'pkg_resources'

I ran the python interpreter in snap run --shell cmake-py.cpp, and confirmed again that the package was not there. Guidance would be much appreciated!

I am using snapcraft version 2.42 on ubuntu 16.04
