Python 3 pip installation trouble

I'm attempting to install Python 3 Pip. However, whenever I try to do so, this is the Terminal readout I get:

Package python3-pip is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'python3-pip' has no installation candidate

What is going on? What can I do to fix this?

Pip is unavailable in Trisquel because it recommends and installs non-free software.

Thanks for the useful information.

I just came accross this thread as python-pip seems required to install the latest version of Seafile server or at least the Seahub part of it (the server is starting without pyton-pip but I don't know whether it is fully functional). Are you aware of any replacement of python-pip that would not have these issues?

If there is none, I'll further check whether it is feasible to run a Seafile server without Seahub or I will look for other pieces of software like nextcloud or owncloud although they are said to be not as fast and taking more resources, besides doing many things I don't need

Since Seafile is listed on the FSF site as free software, would it be useful to report this to the people in charge of checking the free software list?
