[GeoNode-devel] "ImportError: No module named django" when executing "paver setup"

Hello List,

this is yet another try to get working geonode installation. I guess mz 
fifth attempt...

I followed this instruction but on a linux 18.04 

when it comes to "paver setup" it first didn't find paver but an apt-get 
install python-paver corrected this.

Now I want to succeed "paver setup". My virtualEnv "virtenv_geonode" is 
active but it says:

(virtenv_geonode) user at geoportal:/home/geonodeuser/geonode_project$ 
paver setup
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "/usr/bin/paver", line 5, in <module>
   File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/paver/tasks.py", line 883, in main
   File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/paver/tasks.py", line 851, in 
     exec(compile(source, environment.pavement_file, 'exec'), mod.__dict__)
   File "pavement.py", line 21, in <module>
     import django
ImportError: No module named django

Django not installed? Let's try to install:

(virtenv_geonode) user at geoportal:/home/geonodeuser/geonode_project$ pip 
install django
DEPRECATION: Python 2.7 will reach the end of its life on January 1st, 
2020. Please upgrade your Python as Python 2.7 won't be maintained after 
that date. A future version of pip will drop support for Python 2.7.
Requirement already satisfied: django in 
*/home/user/Envs/virtenv_geonode/lib/python2.7/site-packages* (1.11.20)
Requirement already satisfied: pytz in 
/home/user/Envs/virtenv_geonode/lib/python2.7/site-packages (from 
django) (2019.1)

How surprising, Django is there! Lets check the python path:

(virtenv_geonode) user at geoportal:/home/geonodeuser/geonode_project$ python
Python 2.7.15rc1 (default, Nov 12 2018, 14:31:15)
[GCC 7.3.0] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
 >>> import sys
 >>> sys.path
['', '/home/user/Envs/virtenv_geonode/lib/python2.7', 
'/usr/lib/python2.7', '/usr/lib/python2.7/plat-x86_64-linux-gnu', 

Oh, well, django is in 
"/home/user/Envs/virtenv_geonode/lib/python2.7/site-packages" and the 
last element of the python path is 

Well, as I noted before, I have no experience with python at all but 
this software really drives my crazy.

Does anyone have a clue?

Thank you very much,
