Description of problem:
sudo python -m ensurepip --upgrade

    sys_sitepack = site.getsitepackages([sys.base_prefix, sys.base_exec_prefix])
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'base_prefix'

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

According to https://docs.python.org/2/library/ensurepip.html
this command supposed to work.

sys.base_prefix is py3 only .

This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
Comment 2 Charalampos Stratakis 2016-09-05 11:01:48 EDT
This should be fixed now in rawhide as the rewheel module patch was not applied fully for python2. By trying your reproducer everything seemed to work fine now with no traceback, thus marking it as duplicate of another bug that dueled on the same issue.
