ERROR: Cannot uninstall 'ruamel-yaml'. It is a distutils installed project and thus we cannot accurately determine which files belong to it which would lead to only a partial uninstall

this error happens while trying to install rasa version 2.0.0rc2 using command [pip3 install rasa==2.0.0rc2]


Install using this pip install rasa --ignore-installed ruamel.yaml

for me pip install rasa --user --ignore-installed ruamel.yaml and pip install rasar --ignore-installed ruamel.yaml did not work.

I suggest doing manually.

rm -rf /path/to/anaconda3/lib/python3.7/site-packages/ruamel*
