I need to install psycopg2 v2.4.1 specifically. I accidentally did:

pip install psycopg2

Instead of:

pip install psycopg2==2.4.1

That installs 2.4.4 instead of the earlier version.

Now even after I pip uninstall psycopg2 and attempt to reinstall with the correct version, it appears that pip is re-using the cache it downloaded the first time.

How can I force pip to clear out its download cache and use the specific version I'm including in the command?

If you want to force pip to clear out its download cache and use the specific version you can do by using  --no-cache-dir  command. If you are using an older version of pip than upgrade it with pip install -U pip.
