I am trying to install MultiQC and I am having a lot of trouble. I am on a Ubuntu virtual machine and I have sudo rights. I followed the instructions from MultiQC for a manual instruction. I did the following:

git clone https://github.com/ewels/MultiQC.git
cd MultiQC/
sudo python setup.py install

When I type multiqc --help, I get the following output, which I don't understand:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/bin/multiqc", line 4, in <module>
    import pkg_resources
 File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pkg_resources.py", line 2749, in <module>
    working_set = WorkingSet._build_master()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pkg_resources.py", line 444, in _build_master
    ws.require(__requires__)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pkg_resources.py", line 725, in require
    needed = self.resolve(parse_requirements(requirements))
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pkg_resources.py", line 628, in resolve
    raise DistributionNotFound(req)
pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: backports.functools-lru-cache

I am quite confused as to what this means ( I don't use Python). Any help would be deeply appreciated.
