I was attempting to set the default python variant to python3 in Ubuntu 16.04. As a matter of course, it is python2 (2.7). I followed the underneath steps :
update-alternatives --remove python /usr/bin/python2
update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/python python /usr/bin/python3
however, I'm getting the accompanying blunder for the subsequent assertion,
[email protected]:~$ update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/python python /usr/bin/python3
update-alternatives: --install needs <link> <name> <path> <priority>
Use 'update-alternatives --help' for program usage information.
I'm new to Ubuntu and I don't have the foggiest idea what I'm fouling up.
