You have a number of Python installations - Python(x,y) is one, Anaconda is
another, and if you've created conda environments, each one is effectively
a separate Python. You need to make sure you're using pip in the same
installation as where you want to use the modules. So if you're using
Anaconda, you need to make sure that 'which pip' gives you a path in the
Anaconda directories.

Matt's solution will leave you with only one Python installation. That's
the simplest way to make sure you're installing packages in the right one,
but it's not the only way.
