Having trouble installing Jupyter Notebooks

I completed the class on command line and set up standard python, but when I followed the tutorial on installing Jupyter Notebooks through pip on git bash, it came up with the following message:

error: Microsoft Visual C++ 14.0 or greater is required. Get it with “Microsoft C++ Build Tools”: https://visualstudio.microsoft.com/visual-cpp-build-tools/

ERROR: Failed building wheel for argon2-cffi
Failed to build argon2-cffi
ERROR: Could not build wheels for argon2-cffi which use PEP 517 and cannot be installed directly

Is there anything I have to install or do to fix this error? Should I use a different command?

I run into similar problem after installing Python 3.9 and trying to install jupyter notebooks. You need to go to the following URL: https://visualstudio.microsoft.com/visual-cpp-build-tools/ and download Microsoft Build tools (just click big blue button). After downloading and executing the installer you will be presented with various choices: one of them is Microsoft C++ build tools. Click the checkbox and choose Install. You will need to reboot your computer after install finishes. After that run pip install jupyter again and everything should be fine.
