Best answer

To upgrade Numpy and Scipy on the Ubuntu machine, run the following commands on the terminal:

sudo pip install scipy --upgrade

sudo pip install numpy --upgrade

If the upgrade is successful, you will see the message: "*successfully installed xxxx*" on the terminal.

You can check their version from the Python command line:

>>> import numpy as np

>>> np.version.version

'1.21.2'

>>> import scipy

>>> scipy.version.version

'1.7.1'
