It looks like shiningpanda ships with a version of pip which is very old. It uses version 1.5.6 where the latest is 7.1.0. We ran into this issue when the version of pip used with shiningpanda was unable to successfully install our requirements.txt file.
I assume that the versions of virtualenv and setuptools are probably also pretty old. Is there any interest in updating scripts/wheels found here? https://github.com/jenkinsci/shiningpanda-plugin/tree/3c55a474e07a9116d804951a07301c36304da72f/src/main/resources/jenkins/plugins/shiningpanda/workspace
I would be more than willing to create a PR for the github repo with updated version.
