Yeah I found this out a few days ago on r/python … Apparently the API that pip search depends on
allows people to spam the PyPI service into oblivion, so they decided just a few days ago to disable
it by throttling any attempts to access it. They don’t have a 1:1 replacement for pip search as of
yet, but it is irksome they just decide to do this with no replacement or notification.
The pip install command still works and you can still access the pip search functionality with
3rd party workarounds.
