I don't have access to a console on my Dataiku server so I need to install Python packages from within DSS. Is it possible to do that in a notebook or in a shell recipe ?

    Yes it possible but not recommended/supported. You should do it via the console (SSH) or contact an administrator.

    May I follow up with a related question?
    I just installed the plug-in for USPTO and was unable to install the dependencies, because my pip was outdated, as it turned out. I ran pip install --upgrade pip on the console successfully and restarted dataiku. I am still getting the same error message though. How do I update the pip setting inside dataiku to "force" it see the new pip?
    Thank you.
