created an issue

When I run the command "sudo pip install -U pyobjc", as per the documentation, on OS X El Captain 10.11.5 I get the error message:

raise VersionConflict(dist,req) # XXX put more info here

pkg_resources.VersionConflict: (pyobjc-core 2.5.1 (/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/Extras/lib/python/PyObjC), Requirement.parse('pyobjc-core>=3.1.1')) 

Could you help?

    Are you using /usr/bin/python for this? If so: don't upgrade PyObjC in the system install of Python, that might break functionality of the OS. It is better to either use the installer or virtualenv (or both).

    Thank you. Yes I was using the system install of Python. When I use virtualenv it works fine. However, at the time I was using a third party library that couldn't run inside virtualenv.
