upgraded os, pycharm, switched interpreter - no packages in repo - Ubuntu 16.04


 Hi - I was running into thick concrete walls when I was using 3.4.3 interpreter in that I was unable to install requisite packages like PyQt receiving errors telling me that there was no version that satisfied the requirement.

I upgraded from 14.04 to 16.04 (Ubuntu), installed the latest version of PyCharm Pro (2017.1.2) and updated my interpreter to use 3.5.2.  Now, when I go to Settings -> Project Interpreter, I can see a list of the installed packages but when I go to add a new package, something trivial like "web", the package list comes up empty.

I read the other posts here about the similar problem but couldn't derive a solution because of either platform or version differences.  I'm new to Python so you're going to have to use little words to explain to me why this is happening and how to fix it...

update:   I installed something like package settings/tools and now I can see a list of the available packages.

When I try to install a module, again: web, using the terminal within the IDE, to check the pip version, I get:

mshallop@agador-spartacus:~/code/python/mhcBlog$ pip -V
pip 9.0.1 from /usr/local/lib/python3.5/dist-packages/pip-9.0.1-py3.5.egg (python 3.5)
mshallop@agador-spartacus:~/code/python/mhcBlog$ pip install web
Collecting web
Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement web (from versions: )
No matching distribution found for web

When I attempt to install from the IDE/GUI, I get:

Hello Michael, thank you for the update.

Please try to install the package for your project interpreter in the system Terminal. If you get the same error, it means that the problem is not Pycharm related.
