With no changes we have started to get the above error. 

We get it with the 1.7-py3 stack and the 1.8-py3 stack

Our requirements.txt

We have tried upgrading our requirements to the latest but still the same error.

The error seems out of our control.

Could it be this pip issue? https://github.com/pypa/pip/issues/7217

We have tried to specify a pip version in requirements.txt but we just get a different error (and it's not recommended)
