I'm going to add some context here.

We are caching pip packages at project level. We had discussed about caching this per-version at #5685.

This PR removes the cached packages per-project when a version is wiped which I think is a wrong relation: version removing something from project.

I'd just go for a better solution here and always use --no-cache on pip command.

We thought this issue was fixed at #6571 but we were removing the wrong directory.

Talked about this, and I'm +1 on this. I agree with @humitos that moving away from caching pip makes the most sense. It was added a minor speed improvement, but adds a lot of variability into the builds that shouldn't be there. Caching per version is the most technically correct if we want to cache, but the incentives aren't really there anymore -- it's just more redundant storage with not a lot of benefit
