@Victor I think this is an issue with optparse where it can't handle non-ASCII strings for %default that is exposed by pip. I can see similar places where non-ASCII strings can cause issue in argparse for unicode choices (issue35009). I think this is a general issue where str() is used where non-ASCII strings throw this error. I am quite new to unicode so I don't know if this issue needs to be fixed in Python 2.7 or it's an error from the user end where their script needs to be fixed?
