Python PIP Upgrade or Install Fails : SSL: CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED behind Proxy

If you're behind a proxy or getting these errors when installing or upgrading python packages or PIP itself

python -m pip install --upgrade pip

WARNING: Retrying (Retry(total=4, connect=None, read=None, redirect=None, status=None)) after connection broken by 'SSLError(SSLCertVerificationError(1, '[SSL: CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED] certificate verify failed: self signed certificate in certificate chain (_ssl.c:1123)'))': /simple/pip/

Then try these extra parameters to trust Python sites (only do this if you trust the proxy)

python -m pip install --trusted-host --trusted-host --upgrade pip
