Ubuntu install pip ERROR

#1

I just installed fresh latest Ubuntu, everything works just fine, Apps and internet.
Then I installed Octoprint using Ubuntu Software App. When I lunch Octoprint
Terminal Window opens and I get several errors.
The first one is:
octoprint.util.pip ERROR Cannot use this pip install, can't write......
I'm new to Ubuntu/Linux so be gantle

#2

I wasn't aware that there is a sudo apt-get install octoprint sort of way of installing this in Ubuntu but apparently someone is possibly building/maintaining that.

It would probably be better to install it using the documentation on the website.
