When I try to call using PyPlot I get an error when it tries to install matplotlib. I tried to clean things up and remove my local version of Anaconda thinking that might be the problem and reinstall PyPlot and PyCall fresh but still getting the error. I am confused also by the error INFO: No system-wide Python was found; got the following error: as I am on Linux Mint, and certainly have a system wide python installed. Could this be part of the reason? Here is my output

Probably a duplicate of JuliaPy/PyCall.jl#65 ... see that issue for workarounds.
